Early Help Employment Advisers

Early Help Employment Advisers can support Families in the following ways:

  • Help with Universal Jobmatch
  • Internet jobsearch
  • Help with CV’s
  • Help with Job applications
  • Interview skills and preparation
  • General benefit queries
  • Work experience opportunities
  • Travel plans
  • Training information
  • Other information such as transport schemes

It is possible to make a request for intervention to a Strengthening Families Employment Adviser when the whole family webstar assessment and action plan clearly identifies that a family meet at least two of the Strengthening Families criteria.

At least one of the criteria needs to be:

  • Worklessness (or at risk of); and/or
  • At risk of Financial Exclusion

The assessment and action plan should also show that the family meet one or both relevant indicators of:

  • No family carers are working
  • The family are at risk of financial hardship

The process to request an intervention for referral is on the early help website.
