D2N2 Skills Mapping

08 February 2018


Do you provide employment and skills advice, support or information to your local community?

You could be a housing association providing advice to tenants, a mental; health service or a small charity providing a general drop in service where employment and skills advice is given. You could be working from a village hall, your local community Centre, a school or event

These activities could be funded by a trust or funders like Tudor Trust, Esmee Fairbairn, Children in Need, European or local authority funding. Your organisation may even be funding this from its own resources.

We are keen to find some of those smaller unfunded organisations that may be providing employment and skills advice so whatever the size of your organisation we want to hear from you!

A mapping exercise is now underway to gauge the employment and skills provision available across Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Derby and Derbyshire (D2N2 area).

This opens on 6 February 2018 and closes on 28 February 2018.

The purpose of the mapping is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the provision available at all levels across D2N2 area.

• In Nottingham the information will be used to update information on the Nottingham Jobs Hub and the Ask Lion directory.

• In Nottinghamshire we will use the information to create a new employment and Skills Zone on the Notts Help Yourself Directory.

• In Derbyshire the information will be used to develop a platform that will sit under Derbyshire County Council's Wellness Hubs and will be used to showcase provision on Derbyshire County Council's website.

• In Derby the information will be made public to help people who need access to employment and skills services.

If your organisation runs any employment and skills provision, whether this is core funded projects, temporary/time-limited projects or support; please could you complete the questionnaire.

The questionnaire can be found by clicking on the link below:


Please complete a separate questionnaire for each services / project you want to tell us about.

Please forward on to any other colleagues, departments and organisations that deliver employment and skills support, advice or information for different client/cohort groups to help us to deliver a comprehensive map of services in the D2N2 area.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on the contact details below.
