Helping families build a brighter future

From time to time we all find life a bit of a struggle. We provide free practical support and advice for unemployed family members, helping you get to a brighter future.

We can help if you, or a family member, are unemployed and facing challenges such as:

  • Health issues, including your health, or that of your partner or children.
  • Parenting concerns.
  • Domestic violence or abuse.
  • Barriers due to anti-social behaviour or a criminal record.

Our advisors offer support to increase skills, find suitable employment, sustain work and more, including:

  • A dedicated Employment Officer providing one-to-one support.
  • Employment advice, CV writing and job search.
  • Training and work experience.
  • Communication and confidence training.
  • Literacy and numeracy support.
  • Budgeting and money management skills.
  • Guidance on setting up your own business.
  • Support around family wellbeing and personal welfare.

Our initiative operates in several London boroughs, providing support to improve your personal and family circumstances and get back into work.
