Jobs 22, an organisation that creates employment opportunities by addressing the social, economic and wellness challenges faced by unemployed individuals has enlisted Offploy to support them in their delivery of the DWP Restart Scheme across East Central England.
At Offploy, we believe in the power of peer support. Our mentors have lived experience of the criminal justice system, and they bring a unique perspective to the work we do. We know first-hand the obstacles and stigma that our peers face, and we're committed to helping them overcome those challenges.
Through our partnership with Jobs 22, we'll be able to provide even more support and guidance to our peers, helping them to navigate the employment landscape with confidence. Jobs 22 will refer Restart participants with convictions to Offploy where they will receive a tailored package of bespoke support, unique to their needs.
Commenting on this partnership, Offploy’s Development Director, Richard Strauss, said “It fills us with enormous pride to be given this opportunity by Jobs 22. We look forward to complementing their delivery of the Restart Scheme and providing even more opportunities to their participants.”
“The partnership with Offploy is an important part of our strategy to include peer support and lived experience specific to our participants’ needs wherever possible,” said Ayden Sims, CEO at Jobs 22.
“A large part of our role is to advocate for those returning to the workplace so we work closely with employers to educate them about the untapped talent they may not have considered before. Offploy is the perfect partner to help us bring returning citizens and employers together.”
