If you're a central London resident who's long-term unemployed or have a health condition that's prevented you from finding work, you might be able to get support from our partners Ingeus.
Their Central London Works (CLW) programme is a voluntary employment support scheme designed to help you move closer to employment with the eventual goal of moving into work.
As part of the programme, participants will be allocated a caseworker who will create a bespoke and tailored package of support. This ranges from pre-employment support such as help with CVs, job applications and interviews to looking at training needs and addressing any barriers they might face in your life. Support around physical and mental health will also be included.
