Action West London is a charity based in Acton working across the West London boroughs specialising in helping unemployed people back into employment. We deliver our mission by working in partnership with statutory, voluntary, community and private sector organisations.
We have currently been awarded a new NEET Project called the ‘YES West London Project’ in partnership with Burleigh College that is designed to help 16-24 year olds to get into employment, education or training.
The project targets the following:

We work with a number of local employers, colleges and Training Providers who are recruiting via Action West London and we would love to make those vacancies/training opportunities accessible to young people.
We aim to accommodate everyone so if you have any other young people who are older than 24 we run other projects which can still support them into employment as well. Specifically, we support unemployed families, where an adult is unemployed in a family and refugees, this include somebody who had refugee status within the last 10 years.
