In response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, D2N2 is working with partners to create the Redeployment Triage Service.

The Redeployment Triage Service, administered by Futures who are the National Careers Service provider for the East Midlands, will match those recently made redundant with new work in sectors experiencing a surge in employment demand such as food retail, care, and distribution.

The service also engages with employers needing to make redundancies to ensure a smooth transition for employees into new work.

This information is for all businesses and employers across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire who are having to make changes to their workforce as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Please follow the advice below to ensure we can support your employees and the labour market during this time.

Redundancy Information

If you have already made employees redundant or are about to make small numbers redundant (up to five), please refer those individuals for direct support to Futures, the National Careers Service provider for the East Midlands:


Phone: 0800 917 94 19

If you are planning to make larger-scale redundancies (five or more) additional support is also available for you as an employer and your employees.

In these circumstances, please use the same contact details above but ensure your message includes:

  • Notification of redundancies at scale
  • Number and job roles affected
  • Last day of work for affected individuals (if known)

For general guidance and links to further information on redundancy for both employers and employees, you can read the DWP Factsheet on Redundancy.
