Does your organisation help people into work?

FaithAction is involved in a project to create a directory of initiatives that help people who have been unemployed for a long time into work. Could you submit a case study about your organisation’s work in this area?

The project is supporting the Government’s Health and Work Unit to work towards inclusive workplaces for everyone. Central to this work is developing an Employer Directory to highlight ‘national and local pathways to work’. This electronic Directory of employment support programmes will be shared with employers and will sit alongside a Pathways to Work toolkit for public sector employers and the voluntary and community sector.

The resources will help employers work with and support disabled people, people with long term health conditions and disabilities and people with ‘protected characteristics’ as defined by the Equalities Act 2010 – including religion and belief.

If you can give an example of a national or local initiative employment support initiative or ‘success story’ about helping people towards, into and to stay in work – you can take part. Examples can be current or from the past.

The project is funded by Public Health England. It is being led by Homeless Link and Win/Win Alliance, along with other partners in the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, and the Employment Related services Association and Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM).

More information and the template for providing a case study is available in this document.

Please note that you do not need to answer every question – only those you can.

The deadline for returning case studies is 19 October. Please copy in rodie.garland@faithaction.net when you respond.
