Labour Market Partnership

Funded by the Department for Communities, Department for the Economy and supported by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, Antrim and Newtownabbey Labour Market Partnership will deliver a range of programmes to help our residents gain the work-ready skills, experience or qualifications needed to move into employment or to move into a better job.  View our action plan here.

This information has been provided by the Labour Market Partnership (LMP)

LMPs)have been established across the Councils in Northern Ireland to help improve employability outcomes and labour market conditions locally.  It is hoped that by working through multi-agency partnerships we will be able to achieve regional objectives whilst being flexible to meet local needs.

The LMP approach has been introduced by DFC to ensure employability delivery is reflective of the needs of local employers and residents. 

LMPs will play a role in supporting ‘Employability NI’, which is DfC’s regional approach to supporting those who are unemployed to get back to.

Employability NI is designed to provide a range of interventions to:

  • Deliver a reduction in economic inactivity and long-term unemployment;
  • Provide increased support for those with physical/mental health conditions and disabilities; and
  • Implement an intervention that provides a collaborative nature between Central Government Departments and Local Council area to offer direct and unique interventions.  Hence LMP’s 

The ultimate aim of the partnership will be to get more of our residents into better jobs.
