In West London, Shaw Trust works to help residents to get into work offering two programmes - the Job Entry Targeted Support Programme (JETS) and the Work and Health Programme.
JETS is designed to help people to find work who have been unemployed and in receipt of benefits for at least 13 weeks. Employment advisors can support individuals for up to 6 months through one to one meetings. Also, access is given to the Shaw Trust Participant Portal which contains online courses, training, video tutorials and suitable live vacancies.
The Work and Health Programme is designed to help people who have a disability or health condition who have been longterm unemployed or have been disadvantaged due to their circumstances eg someone who is homeless. Support managers work with individuals for up to 15 months to help manage their health conditions, develop their skills and gain sustainable employment.
