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.
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 workshops. Financial advice will also be provided which will include “Better off in Work” calculations and support to improve confidence.
