Transforming Lives Community

TLC's vision

Our Transforming Lives Community (TLC) brings together a range of organisations across Scotland to work collaboratively and ensure we support more disabled and disadvantaged groups into sustainable employment, by offering all participants an individualised and tailored support service.

Organisations from the third, public, private sector and local authorities make up the TLC and share the united vision to transform the lives of people with multiple barriers by supporting them into fair sustainable work.

We believe that by working together and maximising support we can provide sustainable and effective employment for Scottish citizens, improving opportunities, life chances and wellbeing. To support this, we work in partnership to share specialist expertise and best practice to offer our participants more choice and control over their individual support.

At the heart of our ambition, is a desire for inclusive growth to ensure people accessing services have choice and control over their work journey, and while contributing to a better, more resilient economy in Scotland.

We want to ensure a Fairer Scotland and give people the opportunity to build their skills and make the most of their potential, helping them progress in Fair Work and supporting their employers. We want to support the ambition of unemployed people in Scotland and help them find fulfilling jobs where they feel valued and engaged.

We are currently in the process growing our network of TLC partners, if you would like to be included, please contact:
