Carers returning to work
"Working for Carers” is a brand new service to help unpaid carers over 25 years into employment or self-employment through advice and training, befriending and mentoring, plus signposting to the correct training required for that individual.
Harrow Carers are our ‘hub’ manager but we have equal access to any resources. Carers across the London Boroughs of Hillingdon, Harrow, Ealing, Hounslow Brent, Barnet and Hammersmith & Fulham can apply.
This service has been designed to help unpaid carers to feel more employable, to develop their skills and to move forward with employment and/or training goals.
If you are preparing to look for employment, gain more skills or just find out what options are available to you, our tailored and flexible service can help you to build plans to move forward and achieve what once felt impossible.
What we offer:
- One to one sessions with a dedicated Employment Personal Advisor to help support you throughout your journey
- Workshops and group sessions to develop your skills and boost your confidence
- Access to employment, volunteering and training opportunities that meet your specific needs.
