To ask the Minister for Employment and Learning for a breakdown by district electoral area of the home address location of the present clientele of the Local Employment Intermediary Service within the Moyle District Council.
Network Personnel deliver the Local Employment Intermediary Service (LEMIS) in the Moyle District Council area and the wider outreach NI Area 2 for clients with a common employability barrier. The table, which has been placed in the Assembly Library and on my Department’s website at http://www.delni.gov.uk/, provides a breakdown of the number of caseloads and the number of clients who entered employment by electoral areas, since the service began in September 2011.
There are currently 50 active clients; however, the flexible nature of LEMIS allows clients to disengage and re-engage whenever they wish to receive help and support. LEMIS clients can use the service on a voluntary basis at any time that suits them and this will not affect any benefits they may receive.
