G4S Employment Support Services

Community Work Placements

In November 2013, G4S was delighted to be awarded six contracts for the Department for Work & Pensions’ (DWP) Community Work Placements programme as part of the Government’s Help to Work initiative.

G4S have previous experience in providing Welfare to Work contracts through The Work Programme and ESF Support for Families contracts.  Our performance on these contracts was consistently high and this expertise means G4S were ideally placed to support even more people into employment through the Community Work Placements programme.

The initiative provided a pathway for participants furthest from the labour market to gain useful skills and relevant work experience, combined with individually tailored support with the goal of achieving long-term and sustained employment for our customers.

Over the lifetime of the contract, we have engaged with participants across the UK, delivering our services in:

–          North East Yorkshire & The Humber

–          The East Midlands

–          Cumbria, Lancashire and Merseyside

–          Hampshire, Thames Valley and the Isle of Wight

–          East and West London

By working closely with our network of over 30 local organisations who understood their respective areas and hundreds of community based placement provider we were able to engage closely with our clients to provide individually tailored and effective support.  The Community Work Placements programme has helped to open up opportunities and improve the lives of thousands of people who needed it most.

The Community Work Placements Programme was a very successful programme which G4S delivered between May 2014 and May 2017 alongside our network of locally based subcontractors. Participants engaged in up to 30 hours of community based work related activity on placement which has enabled jobseekers furthest from the labour market to gain valuable experience, tailored support and vital skills, helping individuals make the move towards long term, sustained employment.
