Thinking about getting a job, studying or taking up training as a single parent can feel overwhelming at times. We know there can be lots of things that need to be considered to enable parents to do this. Our local services can help you start your journey towards employment or learning.

What we can help you with

Through one-to-one or group support, we can help you decide what direction you want your future to take and feel confident in making those next steps. Information and help with things like childcare, benefits, and job seeking can make those barriers less scary. We can also help you to:

  • get online
  • build your CV
  • look at current vacancies
  • complete application forms
  • prepare for your interview.

You can also meet other single parents in a similar situation and take part in free and accessible employability and skills-building courses in specific locations.

And, when you get a job, we can provide in-work support to help you to budget and access the services and resources you need.
