West of England Metro Mayor, Dan Norris, will meet local residents whose jobs have been hit by Covid-19 as part of the region’s first Jobs & Skills Summit, from 5 to 9 July.
During the week, he will meet residents of all ages across the region – including apprentices in Bristol and Radstock; community learners in South Gloucestershire; Bath mums returning to work, and students at Weston College.
We're encouraging businesses to feed back on their employees’ changing work patterns, to help the West of England plan for future travel needs.
The information provided will help predict how city and town centres might recover, and likely commuting patterns. This will help us, as the regional transport authority, to forward plan public transport to meet future demand.
A Bath charity is launching a brand new e-bike scheme for tourists which will raise vital cash to reduce homelessness and tackle long-term unemployment.
Thanks to one of our business growth grants, the Julian House Bike Workshop is investing in a fleet of e-bikes which they will rent out to tourists visiting the city. All profits go to the charity allowing it to provide more services – particularly in the areas of homelessness, domestic abuse and criminal justice.
