As well as one to one and group support, service users are supported to attnd our Work Group )registered with and approved by Jobcentre Plus), where they work on building a CV, looking for work, applying for jobs, training or education; building up interview skills; access universal job match; use the internet to serch for emplyment and work on coping skills in the workplace.
For those who are not yet ready to go into employment, there is a MAST Group (Multi Agency Support Team) where people from our organisation and partner organisations work together to gain an SVQ level 3 or 4. They also use ILA grants to access college courses and attend shourt courses in local libraries.
For those already in employment, regulations state that if a person is in supported employment, they can only continue this for more than 12 months if they are supported by a third sector organistion. We act as this organisation.
