Groundwork in London

Family Works

COVID-19 UPDATE:

Groundwork London continues to deliver our employability support projects but to minimise risk to our service users and staff, we have temporarily moved to a “remote” service.

This means our team of Advisers are able to provide the same dedicated one-to-one advice and support but via phone or online.

We are still able to register new people to the service so please get in contact to find out more. We will discuss with you the most appropriate method of communication, taking into account your personal situation, IT skills and the resources available to you.

Whether you have recently lost your job, want to work but need help finding and applying for jobs or want to start preparing for returning to work in the future, our Advisors are here to help.


Who do we support?

The Family Works programme supports unemployed residents from Hounslow, Barnet, Wandsworth, Lewisham, Lambeth and Islington into paid employment that compliments their family commitments. Our dedicated Employment Advisors work closely with participants, supporting them to overcome personal and family challenges and to move into sustainable employment.

About the programme

The programme takes a whole family approach, with participants taking part in both 1-2-1 advice sessions and family workshops. The assistance and support we offer includes:

  • 1-2-1 advice appointments
  • Workshops on a wide range of topics, including financial management, motivation and confidence building and health and family wellbeing
  • C.V. and cover letter advice
  • Interview preparation
  • Advice on how to access the ‘hidden job market’ (jobs that aren’t advertised)
  • Advice on returning to work after redundancy
