Households into Work
Support long-term unemployed people who have difficulty finding and sustaining employment.
Households into Work is not just a programme to help people find work, it’s about supporting people to get to a point where they start to think about work as a realistic option. Delivered by the Combined Authority, it was launched in 2018 to support long-term unemployed people who have difficulty finding and sustaining employment due to a range of issues, including financial crises, mental health problems, the risk of eviction or homelessness, domestic abuse, social isolation or chronic health issues.
Over the course of 12 months, participants work on a one-to-one basis with a dedicated employment advocate offering bespoke support not only helping them resolve the issues, but also develop the skills and resilience to help deal with them should they arise again in the future.
One of the ways we support our clients is through gardening. Our Knowsley team have been using an allotment to provide sessions for their clients, planting fruit, vegetables and tending flowers while improving their mental health and wellbeing, developing confidence and building social skills, tackling isolation, gathering work related skills and getting into a routine of work.
Anyone can refer a person into the Households into Work programme. There are more contact details for our individual teams below or you can fill in this form and email it to [email protected]
