The Housing and Employment Conference 2018

Source By: ERSA- Employment Related Services Association

Wednesday 12th December 2018

Join ERSA and Give us a Chance Consortium (GUAC) at this one day conference in central London on 12 September.

We are pleased to announce this year's headline sponsor is Clarion Futures.

The conference will play host to over 100 stakeholders and thought leaders from across the employment support and housing sectors and seeks to provide theoretical and practical examples of integrated services that are better preparing people for long term and sustainable employment; creating vibrant working communities.   The conference will address some of the key challenges for housing association tenants getting into work, and for those already in work to progress. This will include consideration of in-work support and progression routes, the role of secure housing and rents, commissioned employment services support, the role of the charitable sector, Universal Credit and ‘behaviour change’ practices to support sustainable livelihoods, and tenancies.

4in10 report on job centres

 New report 'Working well', published last Friday together with Young Women’s Trust, draws attention to the fact that job centres are not working well to support young jobseekers; and that continuing to roll out Universal Credit, as it stands, will draw many families - whether in work or out – into a punitive inflexible system in job centres that is doing more harm than good. Instead of being a centre of support, job centres are increasingly a place of enforcement.
