Partnering with us

Partnering with Business in the Community to deliver Ready for Work offers a tried and tested model of supporting clients back into work that has been refined over a decade.

If a client is on the Ready for Work programme, I know they will be receiving exceptional support from their work buddies and job coaches, who volunteer their time to help my client on their placements and in their job searches.

Employment and Training Advisor, Turning Point
Not only does our programme support 40% of people who complete their work placement into employment, we also offer: 

  • A large business network, committed to supporting people back into work

  • Access to a comprehensive induction programme.
    Sharing lessons and insight from existing delivery partnerships with a wide-range of organisations including councils, charities and housing associations.

  • Access to our existing infrastructure.
    Including a bespoke data management system and a comprehensive range of resources and toolkits.

  • Supporting campaigns.
    We also have access to business to campaign on the wider issues faced by the people we support.

Our current partnerships come in different shapes and sizes.

Changing Lives delivers Ready for Work across the North East. They identify and support their own residents through the Ready for Work programme.

The Big Trust delivers Ready for Work in Liverpool, working with local housing associations and the National Probation Service/CRC's to identify eligible clients.
