Supporting Our Local Economy

Many people live in Horsham and work further afield but Jeremy believes it is vital that Horsham remains a thriving economic unit in its own right, as it has been for hundreds of years.

Jeremy actively supports local businesses and enjoys meeting the Local Enterprise Partnership, Business Groups and employers to discuss their future plans and the impact their businesses have on the local and national economy.

Nationally, employment is at a record high with more people in work than ever before. This pattern is reflected in Horsham –currently around 1.3% of the economically active population are unemployed and claiming benefits, well below the national figure of  3.3% (itself the lowest rate  of unemployment since the early 1970s). This means that Horsham has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in the country (rated around 600 out of 650 constituencies).  

Jeremy attends employment events in Horsham and is always keen to discuss the benefits of different employment options, such as apprenticeships and graduate schemes. Jeremy also regularly meets the team at the Job Centre Plus to find out how they are supporting people in their journey into employment.  This has been an ongoing interest since Jeremy served on the DWP Select Committee. 

Jeremy is fully aware of the importance a strong local economy has on the local community and will continue to support local businesses in the area.
