Partner Testimony

Employment Plus UK are a fantastic example of the role the third sector can play at the forefront of welfare delivery under the Work Programme. Through a strong governance structure that ensures they have the required focus needed to run a successful operation, whilst also drawing on the wider, strong values of the Salvation Army, the team at Employment Plus have been a pleasure to work with.

In my view, they have successfully made the transition from being a specialist provider into an end-to-end provider and this is reflected in month-on-month performance improvements. Always focused on going the extra mile for the hardest-to-help, their proactive, practical and can-do approach is resulting in a successful model that has transitioned some of our hardest to help customers into sustainable employment. We have also been impressed by their wider engagement with our other supply chain partners through our best practice forums and monthly meetings.”

- Chris Peel, MD, JobFit

“The employment service based at Darbyshire House Lifehouse in Liverpool is a great initiative which is clearly making a difference to the local community. It’s been fantastic to visit today and meet some of the service users.

“I had no idea The Salvation Army operated this kind of service. As cabinet member for Skills and Employment I understand the value of working with the third sector in this way and would love to explore more opportunities for working more closely.

“We advocate a person-centred approach and it’s great to see this being put into action by The Salvation Army here."

- Councillor Lana Orr, Liverpool City Council Cabinet Member for Skills and Employment
