Employment and Training team  

We start by getting to know our clients

This is skilful ongoing work and usually uncovers information that others may not have been told;  we then put together a personalised programme of activities.

We work with a wide range of providers and employers and know of many opportunities, including training, volunteering, work placements and jobs.  We help hundreds of people every year to move into a wide variety of jobs. 

We are based at 33 Rushworth Street, London, SE1 - just five minutes from Southwark tube station. Contact us on: 020 7902 7948.
