Action Acton has won a prestigious award for its One Stop Shop Job Network project.
The employment project has won the European Social Fund (ESF) Leadership Award. It helps unemployed people get back into the workplace using local mentors, one-to-one support, workshops and a referral network.
Nicky Robertson-Peek, Action Acton project manager told the Ealing Gazette: “We have achieved excellent results by working together (with local voluntary groups) to benefit members of Ealing’s diverse communities. Using groups working together in consortiums to tackling unemployment is the way forward and Action Acton is leading this approach.”
Brendon Walsh, Ealing Council Director of Property & Regeneration said: “Ealing One Stop Jobs Shop Network is a really important project for the borough, enabling residents who need a bit more support to get the right training and skills to find and stay in work.”
