Helping unemployed people work towards a new future

As unemployment rises because of the effects of the lockdown, the Surrey Care Trust is providing FREE one to one support to help people who are struggling to get back into work because of additional problems they may be experiencing.

These barriers may be poor mental or physical health, addiction, homelessness or domestic abuse, low maths, English or digital skills, a lack of childcare or a criminal record. They may also find job hunting harder because they are older (over 55), because they speak English as a foreign language or because they have a learning disability.

Anyone experiencing TWO or more of these problems can contact the Trust for help to move them in the right direction for future employment.

The support on offer is available as part of The Alliance Programme, funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund to help tackle social isolation and help bring people closer to the workplace.

Surrey Care Trust’s Project Lead for The Alliance Programme, Helen Placito says: “We work alongside individuals to help chart their progress and overcome the problems they may be experiencing in finding work. We help people to develop realistic objectives to plan their future, and give them information and support to access local training opportunities and other community activities too.”
