Partnership Action for Continuing Employment (PACE) is the Scottish Government’s initiative dedicated to helping individuals and employers with the advice and support they need when faced with redundancy. As with every local authority in Scotland, Orkney has an active PACE Partnership.
We can help you take stock, consider your options, and make the decision that’s right for you.
PACE offers free, impartial advice and support to help you:
