Event description

Description

West London Alliance (WLA) have appointed Shaw Trust to run the devolved Work and Health Programme in the 7 WLA borough (Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow) . The Launch Event is aimed at anyone in West London who works with residents who are not working, who would benefit from finding employment.

The devolution deal has allowed the boroughs to commission a service provider that will deliver a customer focused service to their residents. The new programme will concentrate on helping people with disabilities or health conditions, those who are long term unemployed and others who are at a disadvantage in the labour market find and keep appropriate work.

Shaw Trust will begin delivering the programme in February 2018 and it will run until 2023. One to one advice and support from a case worker will be offered to residents to address the complex barriers they often face in gaining employment. The support will be integrated with existing local services offered by the councils and other local partners, which will ensure local expertise is drawn upon when helping with additional matters such as basic skills, training, health, housing and English for speakers of other languages. Shaw Trust will also support residents during the initial months of employment to help ensure they retain their jobs.

The goal is to introduce Shaw Trust and give you an opportunity to find out more about both the WLA Work and Health Programme, and other employment provision in West London.

The event ends with a networking opportunity over lunch

The West London Alliance Work and Health Programme is part-financed by the European Social Fund
