Women onto Work deliver tailored pre-employability support for women facing significant barriers to employment and are furthest from the job market. Specifically women who are unemployed lone parents with young children, women who live with mental ill health and women who live with wellbeing issues. WOW clients face additional barriers including low confidence and self esteem, debt and money problems, low income, isolation, low qualifications and lack of work experience.
To be eligible for Women Onto Work clients should not be on the Work Programme, be unemployed and want to work, and be over 16 years old.
We provide a safe and motivating environment. Each of our clients works with a personal coach to set goals and develop a tailored action plan. We then help each client access the services, training and supports they need to achieve their goals, and to develop the skills, knowledge, confidence and experience they need to succeed.
Please note that training events and resources are only available to registered WOW clients.
If you need help to overcome barriers that are stopping you from getting work, support while you’re looking for a job, or want to explore options for further education or training, our coaches are here to help.
