COVID19 (Coronavirus) Update

Pecan's employment support has moved from face-to-face appointments to phone support to all of our new and existing clients. 

If you need help during this time finding employment, help with your CV, or are currently furloughed and would like to speak to one of our case workers, please email


The Journey2Work Programme is part-funded by the European Social Fund and provides wrap-around support for unemployed people over 40 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 person is unique, so will be their path to employment. Therefore, everyone we work with will meet with their caseworker on a one-to-one basis with the additional option to attend workshops if you require. Together with your caseworker, you will tailor a plan to overcome your obstacles to finding and sustaining long-term employment.

The length of support will vary according to the individual’s needs. Your caseworker can help with your job search including tackling barriers to employment, updating your CV and finding relevant training.


Are you aged 40 or over?

Are you unemployed or inactive?

Do you want to return to work but not sure where to start?

Do you live in Southwark, Lewisham or Lambeth?

We can help!

If you or someone you know could benefit from this service, then don't hesitate to get in touch. Please call or email
