We can offer support and engage people to find employment, volunteering and courses. Alternatively, we can also support with work retention, whether or not you are on sickness benefits.
Our support is practical and motivational. If you are unemployed, we can help with confidence building, CV’s, job searching, application forms, and interview skills. If you are not “job ready” we can help you consider options, guide you into volunteering and courses and signpost to community resources.
Work can be very stressful! We offer retention support to enable you to communicate well with your managers, often gain reasonable adjustments and to also get support in the workplace to enable recovery and your return to work. People who do not retain their jobs can find themselves in very difficult circumstances and may need help to consider the options. We can offer practical advice and support around job searching, information on claiming benefits and local community providers.
If you think that the Employment Support Team could help you with your current difficulties, talk to your GP or self refer to the service on 0203 228 1350.
