About us

After a successful seven years helping participants into employment and job training we’ve helped over 26,000 Londoners with training and over 8,000 with employment.

Love London Working is a partnership of 9 housing associations based in London seeking to progress those in long-term unemployment and economic inactivity into work. The programme has successfully supported 26,000 customers and helped over 8,000 into employment over 7 years from 2016.

The partnership have extensive presence in many of the most deprived communities in London, communities with significantly higher than average concentrations of people with disabilities, single parents, those from minority ethnic communities and those over 50 and not working. They will use this unique reach to engage participants in a journey to work that begins with an individual assessment followed by guidance throughout a programme of proven support models addressing each participants’ barriers to work.

Our aim

Love London Working aims to recruit 28,000 unemployed and economically inactive Londoners and place 8,000 into employment. The programme is funded jointly by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the 9 delivery partners.

What do we do

Participants will be engaged directly under the Love London Working programme through the network of relationships the partners have with local organisations in deprived areas, such as mental health trusts, schools and community centres.

To reduce barriers to employment and enable full access to participation in the project, participants will receive counselling and support related to mental health and family issues, health and lifestyle advice and well-being.
