will explore the achievements and opportunities of the Government’s flagship policy, Fair Star Scotland and its main objectives towards incorporating vulnerable groups into meaningful employment.
You will review innovative strategies that are transforming Scotland into a Fair Work Nation.
Gain insight from key stakeholders on the strategies that bridge the disability employment gap, reduce youth unemployment, reintegrate recovering individuals and stimulate the social enterprise sector.
Unlock the potential of multi-agency partnerships, funding programmes and upskilling training

You will also review the links between employability and public health from a co-production approach, as the pathway for a sustainable and inclusive economy in the future.
This conference will bring together Government representatives, Local Authorities, support service providers, practitioners, Human Resources managers and social entrepreneurs.
