Merseyside Prayerfest

PRAYER for people goes on all the time in churches and in people’s own homes. In 2009 our Christian Churches are making an extra commitment to pray together for the needs of people in the various communities. During each week there will be a church, somewhere near you, where you can get prayer for your needs. If you listen into the BBC Radio Merseyside Daybreak programme on Sunday, at 8.05am, on 95.8 FM, you will get information and be able to join in prayer. You can send your prayer requests by logging onto the web at:-, or text, or even telephone and leave a message. Why not do something even better? Go to your local church and talk to someone there. You can find out more about the Christian message on the web at:- Go on have a go!

Short-list revealed for local employment partnership awards 2009

THE Marriott, BUPA, McDonalds, Asda, Marks & Spencer and Royal Mail are among the UK employers which have made it onto the shortlist for the Regional and Country Local Employment Partnership (LEP) Awards 2009.

The LEP Awards were introduced by Jobcentre Plus to recognise the important role employment partnerships are playing in getting people back to work. The LEP scheme is on target to get 250,000 long-term unemployed people back into work and with the extra money allocated in the Pre-Budget report last November, people who have just lost their jobs will now be able to benefit.

Overall, Jobcentre Plus received more than 1,000 entries to the awards which have been rolled out regionally across the UK after the success of the national LEP Awards in 2008.

Minister of State for Employment and Welfare Reform, Tony McNulty said:- "The response to the awards has been tremendous and mirrors the success of LEPs in getting people back to work. By working in partnership with employers we aim to find sustainable employment for 250,000 people by the end of 2010.

Now more than ever it is important that we do everything possible to support people to get back into jobs. We will continue to work with employers to provide opportunities for those who find themselves out of work.

These awards recognise the commitment of everyone involved in the success of LEPs and demonstrate, through real life examples, the difference these jobs can make to peoples' lives."

Nominations have been received from employers who have recruited through LEPs, their employees and partner organisations across a range of six awards from Unlocking Talent to Recruitment Innovation.

Winners of the Regional and Country awards will automatically be entered into the National awards, to be held at One Whitehall Place in London on 9 June this year and hosted by Tim Campbell, winner of the first series of The Apprentice and founder of the Bright Ideas Trust.
