It was great to attend the 25th anniversary of Kennedy Scott Ltd on Friday in Dover. The company runs welfare to work and job training programmes to help the long-term employed back to work. Kennedy Scott do a fantastic job in helping Dover and Deal's long term unemployed get work. Their great work has helped local long-term unemployment come down nearly 30% in the last year alone.
Under Labour, long-term unemployment rocketed and too many people were left on the scrapheap, on benefits and without hope. This is now being changed. Thanks to our welfare reforms and our growing economy, more people back people in Dover and Deal are coming off long-term benefits and into jobs.
