Practioners Forum

Invest in Renfrewshire > Practioners Forum

Renfrewshire Council’s Employability Service – INVEST, on behalf of the Renfrewshire Local Employability Partnership supports a Practitioners Forum for front line workers who either provide services and programmes to support residents towards and into work or who may refer residents for employability support.

The aim of the forum is to provide partners/agencies the opportunity to showcase the services available within Renfrewshire. It offers a platform to engage, refer or signpost to other agencies to assist residents to access training, employment, education, or volunteering opportunities.

It’s also a great opportunity to discuss opportunities and challenges practitioners are experiencing and to highlight any unmet employability support needs which others may be able to help with.

Over 60 practitioners from a wide range of organisations attend the forum and receive information via emails.

The Forum meets the first Thursday of  every month 2pm-4pm.

To join the Forum; receive meeting invites and regular emails or simply to find out more, please email the Forum Chair, Isobel McLaughlan on
