Beckton & Royal Docks Children's Centre actively support parents and carers wishing to get back into employment or training.  Newham Workplace is committed to helping Newham residents back into employment benefiting from the local regeneration of the borough.  Workplace offers a comprehensive service to support the needs of local people. In addition to employment support, they also offer support that range from housing benefit and debt advice, supported employment (a team that supports candidates who may have a physical or learning disability) and a specialised young persons team.

You can speak to a member of the Children's Centre team who can complete a referral form to Workplace who will then contact you to arrange for an initial interview.
