What we do

If you’re 16 years old or over, out of work and a resident of the Liverpool City Region, Households into Work may be able to support you to improve your situation. 

We go further than supporting people into employment; our programme helps identify and overcome barriers, such as debt, redundancy and addiction linking into other services to create one solution.

More than 4,000 people have been supported by the programme since it began in 2018, with most gaining improved personal resilience and over half progressing on to formal education, training or other skills development. More than a third of participants progressed into Employment or a work-related activity such as volunteering. 

Over the course of 12 months, participants have the support of a dedicated employment advocate working closely together to help them move forward to the point where employment is a realistic and attainable goal.

We will also help to develop the skills and resilience needed to deal with issues should they arise again in the future.

Whatever your circumstances or challenges may be, have a chat with one of the team.
