Reed In Partnership’s Work Routes provides people with the support they need to achieve their job goal.  Priority groups include those that have not worked for 2 years or more, have a mental health issue, are disabled, have no qualifications, are in receipt of ESA or have an ESOL need.

A personal action plan will be developed based on each participant’s individual needs and work ambitions.

This includes:

  • 1-2-1 expert guidance
  • High quality skills training
  • Access to exclusive vacancies
  • CV help & interview preparation
  • Financial support with travel and work clothes

The programme is available from January 2017 for 3 years. 1,000 people will receive support for up to one year plus an additional 26 weeks in work support if required.
