Careers Advancement Service (CAS) helps move residents into better paid jobs and reduce the impact of welfare reforms, which has seen working families lose up to £2,000 per year from in work benefits.

The scheme helps also local businesses grow and support their staff, thanks to a partnership with the Manchester Growth Hub.
