Mid Ulster Labour Market Partnership

The Mid Ulster Labour Market Partnership (LMP) has been established as part of the Department for Communities’ (DfC) Employability NI programme, which aims to design, procure and implement a fresh suite of employability initiatives to support people into meaningful employment.

With an ambitious action plan now agreed and funding confirmed by both the DfC and the Department for the Economy (DfE), the Mid Ulster LMP is beginning work to:

  • Better understand local market needs

  • Improve employability outcomes

  • Reduce economic inactivity

  • Improve local labour market conditions, and

  • Design and deliver targeted interventions.

These interventions aim to:

  • Reduce the number of job claimants and improve economic activity

  • Reduce the disability employment gap

  • Improve the female economic activity rate.

The action plan will target residents who are:

  • Unemployed, long term unemployed, under-employed or at risk of redundancy and/or

  • ‚ÄčEconomically inactive for any reason (including due to long term ill-health or disability, caring commitments, early retired, or any other reason).
