What is the CPN?

The CPN is a long-term partnership between organisations in the public, private and third sectors with a shared belief that supporting more people into quality work helps individuals and communities to thrive. Working at a regional level, each CPN brings together organisations to integrate and align services for jobseekers, and fund innovative support to help more people find work.

Through the CPN we’re committed to meeting the needs of local communities, working together to respond to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, long-term unemployment and physical and mental wellbeing. The CPN provides members with a forum to collaborate and share information, resources, skills and knowledge. It also helps organisations access funding for their services.
