UK Shared Prosperity Fund

Central London Forward’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund programme provides high-quality employment and skills support for unemployed and economically inactive residents across central London.

The £8.3m programme is delivered by 11 central London local authorities.

Our UKSPF programme aims to support at least 2,314 central London residents over 15 months. It focuses on residents who are unemployed or economically inactive, and who face complex needs or multiple barriers to work.

The UKSPF programme provides a holistic and personalised service, including:

  • Employability support including support with job-search, CVs and interview;
  • Job-specific training related to the participants career goal;
  • Confidence building and life skills;
  • Basic skills including English, numeracy, IT and ESOL;
  • Referral to specialist support, including health and wellbeing;

The programme seek to engage with local employers to help identify and fill vacancies. Our focus is on supporting residents into Good Work jobs, paying at least the London Living Wage.

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund is a Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities fund, which aims to tackle inequalities and improve life chances across the UK. The fund is managed by the Greater London Authority (GLA) in the capital.
