HELP INTO WORK

Because We Care

Having the opportunity to find work in the area you live can go a long way to helping you feel comfortable, secure and at home. It can even help you to afford the housing you want or need, and allow you more choice in your housing.

If you’re out of work, getting back into work won’t always be easy. We understand the current financial climate and the difficulties it has caused in finding work. Therefore we want to assist you in gaining as much knowledge, training and the skills to help you realise your potential.
If you are currently looking for work, the information provided here may help you in exploring employment or training opportunities.

Benefits advice:
Many people think that going to work means coming off benefits and that going back to work is therefore unaffordable. For the majority, this may not be the case. The benefits advisor that can be found on www.direct.gov.uk will help you work out what benefits and incentives you can claim when you do find work.

You may also want to download the Benefits of Working leaflet for more information on in-work benefits:

To help work out how much housing benefit you will be entitled to, you can use this Housing Benefit Calculator.

CV writing:
A Curriculum Vitae (CV) is essential to tell employers about yourself and your experience. It’s a pen picture of you and a good CV creates a good first impression.

Local organisations that can help you look for work and training:

There are many local organisations that can help you look for work and training if you are unemployed. They will give you practical support like CV advice, job search facilities, interview technique and confidence building.

Please look through the West London Working Training Directory and it will help you identify your nearest provision.
