SFHA to host redundancy support webinar with PACE
The Redundancy Support webinar, taking place on 26 May, will be jointly facilitated by SFHA and PACE and will offer advice to help members and their tenants to understand the practical support available. Ahead of the session, PACE has written a blog about the support it can provide to those facing redundancy.
Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) is the Scottish Government’s initiative dedicated to helping people with the advice and support they need when faced with redundancy.
PACE is made up of partner organisations such as Jobcentre Plus, local authorities, Citizens Advice and learning providers who can provide local, impartial advice and help manage the stress which comes with facing redundancy. PACE support is free, confidential, and can help with next steps following redundancy.
PACE can help people:
understand the redundancy process, including rights and entitlements.
check what benefits they may be entitled to and review tax calculations.
look for jobs.
write CVs and application forms and prepare for interviews.
identify learning and training opportunities.
with money advice.
cope with redundancy-related stress.
Expert advisers are on hand to provide one-to-one support over the phone or video chat. Our website, redundancyscotland.co.uk, has lots of information to guide people through the process. There are also a series of webinars which are free to attend and take place every week. The webinars are:
