Supporting new jobs and creating skills locally

Creating a commission to spur economic growth


Stockport Council

Stockport Council launched its Works & Skills Commission in January, which together with the work of its Poverty insight group forms part of the council’s Inclusive Growth agenda. The Commission takes a pioneering approach to addressing barriers to skills and employment in Stockport. This began with a series of workshops focussed on identifying the priority work, skills and local economic issues affecting Stockport. The newly appointed Work and Skills board has met for the first time, resulting in the development and publication of the Work and Skills action plan which is already being implemented.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
