Households into Work

Published: 5/10/2020

Households into Work is a unique and innovative programme of support for people living in households across the Liverpool City Region, who because of their circumstances have difficulty finding and sustaining employment.

As part of the programme, employee advocates work across all 6 of the Liverpool City Region’s local authorities, mostly working on an outreach basis. The advocates provide people who start on the programme with 1:1 support, helping them tackle and resolve issues which are preventing them from seeking employment and for which they have no or limited access to people or services that might otherwise help them.

People can remain on the programme for up to 12 months during which time the advocate will help the individual identify, prioritise and tackle the issues which are preventing them from seeking and sustaining employment.

To be eligible for a place on Households into Work you must live in the Liverpool City Region, be aged 16 and over, be unemployed, be willing to join the programme and there be at least one other member of your household who meets the eligibility criteria.
