Homeless people in Liverpool helped to find employment
An event where homeless people can meet potential employers and take part in workshops has been organised by homeless charity Crisis.
The event is part of National Employment Fortnight which is run by Crisis and attendees will learn about local job opportunities and have the chance to take part in workshops offering practical skills, mock interviews and advice on what employers are looking for, reports the Liverpool Echo.
Jon Sparkes, chief executive of Crisis, said: “Being out of work is both a major cause and consequence of homelessness – 97% of homeless people want to work, but they need the right support. They cannot be rushed, forced or sanctioned into employment. Homelessness is a devastating experience that shatters the confidence and self-esteem. Alongside our year-round job coaching services, Employment Fortnight is a great way for people to build the skills and confidence they need to find employment. It is also an opportunity for businesses to meet high calibre candidates and learn how Crisis helps people on their journey out of homelessness.”
