About our programmes

In2Work

In2Work

As part of the Journey to Work programme, we are launching our new In2Work project for anyone over the age of 24 who has been employed until recently but lost their job due to the pandemic and needs a bit of support to get themselves back into work. We can help with anything from CVs to job applications and provide links with employers with opportunities and any other advice you need.

Y Wish Youth Works

Y-Wish for 18-24 year olds

A physical Youth Employment Support Hub in Horsham town's Swan Walk shopping centre has now opened. Y-WISH is designed to help 18-24-year olds with finding work, training or careers advice. We have friendly youth advisors to help you with whatever advice or guidance you need.

Wish

WISH Employment Support Clubs

Group and one-to-one support activities for anyone who needs employment help across the Horsham District. WISH has in particular helped those that have a number of barriers to work and may have been unemployed for quite some time. This support is currently delivered online but we intend to provide this service in the rural communities of the Horsham district as soon as possible.

About Journey to Work

Journey to Work is Horsham District Council’s long running and successful employability programme. Working in partnership with Jobcentre Plus, we help unemployed people through challenges they may be facing in their lives, and support them on their Journey to Work.

Since Journey to Work started in January 2012, we have supported nearly 1000 job seekers in various ways. These include improving confidence, helping with financial challenges, providing work experience placements and helping search and apply for jobs. In the past 8 years, Journey to Work has helped nearly 500 people find work.
