We are very excited to announce that we’ll be starting a new project in the new year, having been awarded funding to carry out an Intensive Employment Support Programme across Hackney and Tower Hamlets.
Taking place over 13-weeks, we’ll work with 34 individuals throughout the year to provide one-on-one tailored support for those who have been unemployed long term or have other hidden barriers that have prevented them from finding work. Practitioners will provide therapeutic support where necessary, and aim to address surrounding issues by providing practical, hands on support.
For us, it was important to create a programme that balanced job searches, interview preparation, skills development and building networks of employment support with our holistic approach that understands how different issues converge to impact each individual’s life. It is this ethos that we believe will make a real difference for those we work with, not only in finding work, but in finding stability and support in all areas of life.
