Shelforce disability employment team B24
Birmingham City Council is planning to redesign the Shelforce disability employment team.
Shelforce manufactures window, door and curtain walling systems and kitchens. Its business model supports people with disability in gaining meaningful employment through training and support provided by Shelforce’s employment team.
The council’s 2011-15 business plan describes the redesign as an “extremely difficult challenge”. The council says that Shelforce is operating a trading deficit which means that the current service model is no longer viable.
Alternative funding streams and “delivery options” will be explored, but the council warns that if these are not successful, “it may be necessary to cease delivery of some disability employment services”.
