    Smart Works are delighted to have received funding from the Regent’s Place Community Fund, an important supporter of ours, who are helping us to launch a project that will support 50 unemployed women in NW1, W1W and W1T with the clothes, coaching and the confidence to succeed at interview and change their lives.  

    The Smart Works service is well established in North London, with our HQ operating in Islington and a second centre supporting women in Ladbroke Grove. This project will build on our existing work in North London, focussing our efforts more directly in NW1, W1W and W1T where we feel there is the potential to help more womenThrough this project, we aim to increase the number of women supported in these local areas by a third. 

    With support from a team of experienced volunteers, we will build upon and strengthen existing relationships with referral organisations, such as the Job Centre, council services, mental health organisations and local charities. We will also develop new partnerships with organisations who are supporting unemployed women in these areas and speak directly to potential clients, by identifying opportunities to speak at team meetings and attending events in these areas, such as employment fairs 

    We are excited to launch this project and confident that this tried and tested outreach strategy will enable us to achieve goal of engaging with disadvantaged women in the local area who are often difficult to reach but are the most in need of our support. 

    We look forward to sharing our progress soon.
