Are you a West Lancashire business passionate about West Lancashire? If yes, then sign up to the Let’s talk Employment & Skills Charter.
The Charter is a mutual agreement between your business and West Lancashire Borough Council to help support local employment and skills initiatives, as well as providing many benefits to your business.
The Council will work together with your business and provide you with a package of support including: information on available funding and grants; workforce solutions and establishing and enhancing links with local education establishments.
There is no cost to your business.
In return, we ask your business to dedicate at least one day a year to support local employment and skills initiatives. Not only does this benefit West Lancashire but this can be an effective way to promote your business, support recruitment and provide staff development opportunities.
The aim is to encourage local businesses to invest in West Lancashire. We want businesses to help achieve the following ‘key asks’:

Like many local employers your business may be doing some of these activities already, all the more reason to sign up and gain recognition for your efforts!
You will also be awarded a certificate as recognition of your involvement and support, as well as having your business name listed on the Council website as one of West Lancashire’s employers committed to supporting the Charter.
