Supporting parents with employment, wellbeing and welfare advice

The Council’s Employment Support Team manages the Ways2Work network and website, www.ways2work.org.uk that supports people who are looking for work in the City and the services that support them. Joining is free and there are daily updates as they receive information from employers who are seeking to recruit to positions to keep the key services running, together with updates from a variety of sources promoting health and wellbeing, welfare advice, support with job hunting, support for small businesses and the self-employed etc. They are also planning to host their first “Virtual” – on line Jobs fair in the near future and are currently working with a number of employers.

Coronavirus latest update

Dear Parents/carers As I am sure you are aware, the government has announced that schools will close on Friday afternoon (20 March 2020) until further notice, for all children, with the exception of the children of key workers and vulnerable children (defined as those with a social worker or Education Health Care Plan). The list of key workers is being published today and we will share that with you. Each school will be contacting its parents/carers and asking whether you fit into these categories and wish your child to continue to attend school. We will need to put plans in place to meet this call to action, for example continuing to open for these children throughout the Easter holiday. A lot of the detail linked to this announcement has yet to be published, such as how the provision for free school meals will work. Please talk to us about your individual circumstances which we may be able to support you with. We will keep in touch with parents/carers via the school’s website and Facebook page and will let you know when your child’s school will re-open. The Secretary of State said in his speech to the House of Commons that headteachers, teachers and staff who work in schools are central to the country’s response. The last week has been very challenging but our staff are remarkable in their resilience and commitment to children and young people. Through working together, I know we will rise to this challenge and make the difference our country needs. Thank you for your support and understanding at this challenging time. We wish you and...
