Workwise - a scheme to help Lambeth residents into employment - proving a success
Workwise - a scheme led jointly by St Mungo's and Lambeth council - has enjoyed considerable success in its first three years of operation. It helps unemployed Lambeth council tenants find paid or unpaid employment, acquire useful skills and increase their self-confidence. It couples its supportive approach with a number of practical offers - ranging from paying for candidates' transport to job interviews to loaning them appropriately sober clothing and handbags to wear for the occasion.
