The Family Works Program is part-funded by the European Social Fund and provides wrap-around support for unemployed families in Lewisham, Lambeth and Southwark.
The goal of the programme is to help each participant increase their skills and find and keep work. Just as every family is unique, so will be their path to employment. Therefore, each family we work with is assigned a caseworker who will meet them on a one-to-one basis. Together, the family and caseworker will partner with local community organisations such as schools, social services and Jobcentre Plus, to tailor a plan that helps them overcome their obstacles toward long-term employment.
The length of support will vary according to the individual’s needs addressing the barriers they and their families face in finding, securing and sustaining employment.
