Steps to Success

logo

Our Steps to Success project is specifically aimed at engaging and supporting parents aged 16 or over with young children living in one of 28 London boroughs and increase the employment rate of parents helping those currently out of work into employment, and those in work to sustain and progress their careers.

Our objectives are to enable parents to enter or re-enter the workplace in a manner that works for them and their families and enable parents in work to increase their earnings and/or gain more secure contracts. The project delivers a range of personalised bespoke packages of support to overcome barriers to employment, progression in work or employment sustainability, in particular to maximise the uptake of available childcare support and provision of flexible activities to increase skills levels and overcome other social or practical obstacles. By working closely with employers in London we will increase the proportion offering family-friendly employment conditions and support parents to access government childcare support to which they are entitled but have previously struggled to access or are unaware of.

It is managed by the Greater London Authority and part-funded by the European Social Fund.

To be eligible for this programme you must be:

  • A Parent aged 16 or over (with children aged 6 months to 11 years)
  • Currently resident in one of the following London boroughs:
    Barnet; Brent; Camden; City of London; Ealing; Hackney; Hammersmith & Fulham; Haringey; Harrow; Hillingdon; Hounslow; Islington; Kensington & Chelsea; Lambeth; Lewisham; Southwark; Tower Hamlets; Wandsworth; Westminster; Barking & Dagenham; Bexley; Bromley; Enfield; Greenwich; Havering; Newham; Redbridge or Waltham Forest
  • Unemployed (receiving benefits) or economically inactive (must not be in paid employment); or Employed (part-time or full time) earning below the London Living Wage (currently set £10.75 per hour)

Results: The project launches in January 2021 and we will report on our progress and highlight the successes in due course.
