Overcoming Barriers to Employment

Our regular users, and those who have received an update email recently, will be aware that we have recently launched a Support Directory (see menu to the left).  The Directory contains details of organisations that provide information, support and services to help people overcome barriers to employment, or that provide in work support. 

Many Welfare to Work providers set up information points, IAG areas, and other facilities within their centres to provide easy access to support information.  However, many still struggle to maintain a core directory of information that staff can easily access, and the information held is often not maintained or updated.  It is also time consuming and difficult to find information or to sift through the raft of information available (we know ... we've done it!). 

Our Directory is a FREE service which we are committed to developing for all of our users.  Our aim is to create a reliable resource that is developed by the end user, and is one that we are sure delivery staff will find invaluable.  While it is primarily aimed at frontline delivery staff, it could also provide a useful resource for clients. 

The directory itself is divided into subject areas and each entry has a brief description of the organisation, the information or service they provide, and contact details.  There is already a host of information in the directory, but we are constantly monitoring, updating, and reviewing it so it will continue to grow.  However, we would like users to contribute to the directory, so even if all you have is an idea that needs researching, a barrier to employment you can’t find much about, or an organisation you think should be included, then let us know.  We can do the leg work for you - you don’t have to provide loads of information, just the basics.  We are also happy to add locally based organisations as well as those providing a nationwide service, so if you know of any local support organisations who you think are worth a mention, please let us know.  You may even BE one of these organisations! 

You can fill in our contact form (click here) to share your views and ideas, so please get in touch and help us to solve a problem for countless providers across the UK.
