LOAN toolkit

Linking Opportunity and Need (LOAN) is the approach taken to ensure that individuals who live in disadvantaged areas or are part of disadvantaged groups are able to access to the training and employment opportunities arising from economic and physical investment. Simply, it aims to connect opportunities on the demand side of the labour market with needs on the supply side.

This toolkit has been developed by the Scottish Centre for Regeneration and aims to support local Community Planning Partnerships, Employability Partnerships and others to develop and implement initiatives to effectively link opportunities and needs within communities and to use Community Benefits as a means of increasing employability. It provides a source of information as well as practical advice, tools, templates and links to best practice case studies.
