Working West London

Jul 21, 2017 | VCS

This is a new project to help refugees gain employment and build their careers based on their existing skills.
The project aims to make a substantial difference to participants’ lives, by helping them obtain employment, gain a sense of confidence and feel recognition for their contribution to the work market.
The project started in April 2017 and runs until December 2019.
It is based in 7 West London boroughs – Brent, Barnet, Hounslow, Harrow, Hammersmith and Fulham, Ealing, Hillingdon.
Working West London is all about supporting refugees groups into meaningful and sustainable employment, following a whole-person approach to personal and skills development; recognising existing skills and experience so that people can return to work in jobs and professions that they had previously trained in, thus supporting job sustainability.
Aim of the project:
– to provide targeted support to address those complex barriers faced by working age unemployed and economically inactive refugees (and certain other groups) in seeking and obtaining employment.
Outcomes of the project:
-Participants feel supported to manage their barriers to work
-Participants feel empowered to sustain their employment, developing the confidence to independently apply for jobs when faced with progression opportunities
-Employers better understand refugee employment immigration rules, see the value in workforce diversity and are more empathetic towards refugees and open to giving them employment
PROJECT Funded by the Lottery and European Social Fund as part of the Building Better Opportunities Programme.
Consortium led by ELATT.
