Family Works Project

Action West London is working closely with local authorities and local partners to identify families who could benefit from the provision. This will involve engaging with families from the local community and provide them support which will help them secure employment.

At the point of referral your advisors will engage with individuals to assess their goals, barriers and motivations toward work through our diagnostic process, this is a part of our specialist and bespoke support/provision, supporting social inclusion for the family unit and moving individuals into sustained employment. This process will be regularly reviewed to ensure all plans are aligned and customers can clearly see their progress on the program.
