About MOVE

Project Overview This National Lottery and EU funded project aims to help economically inactive and unemployed people to start on the road back into employment, by tackling barriers that prevent them from working, and enter in sustained employment. The project is being delivered across the Greater Lincolnshire LEP area, which is home to a wide range of communities, economic influences and geographical areas, from the North Sea coastline and its towns and villages, to the urban areas e.g.Lincoln, Grimsby, and Grantham, to the more rurally isolated communities, e.g. on the fens.  The project is being provided by 19 partners, over 7 years, and seeks to ensure that a significant number of men and women are engaged in activities that will improve their work readiness. MOVE Website: This website will give guidance, and aim to lighten the load of partner organisations in the form of relevant documents and forms made available to users. It also hosts a diary of MOVE events which will show important meetings involving the partnership.

The MOVE Project will finish on 30 June 2023. The timeline for bringing the project to a successful conclusion is:

  1. 30 June 2022 – cease recruitment to the project. While this is not a hard and fast rule, any partner who feels they may have a compelling reason to bring a participant on to the project after this day is to discuss it with a member of the Project Management team.
  2. 31 Dec 2022 – all partner’s participant files are to be closed at this point and brought up to date, with all forms completed and all electronic files correct prior to the management team conducting site visits.
  3. 31 March 2023 – the management team will have visited all partner sites and conducted compliance checks. When this has been done, the files will be collected for final checks and placing into storage.
  4. 30 June 2023 – The MOVE project is completed.
