Local Area Agreements are key to bringing local partners together to focus on effective joint action in local areas. LAAs are already strongly focused on improving local economies. Nine in 10 local areas have a target on tackling worklessness and five out of six areas have a target on getting 16 to 18-year-olds into education, training or employment. LAAs will help empower local areas to respond to the downturn in ways that best make sense locally.
