18:00 05 January 2014

Havering Council is offering free jobs and housing advice for those looking to get back into work and residents wishing to secure a home of their own.

The Keys for Change scheme starts on Tuesday with staff from Lifeline, a career advice service. There is also financial support available to cover travel, clothing and equipment.

Those joining the scheme will boost their chances of getting a home of their own and the council can help with temporary private rented accommodation.

Extra career support is available at the Jobs Club. The club lasts for 12 weeks and starts on Wednesday.

Those who attend will receive training about online job applications, managing a budget and presentation skills.

Keys for Change is from 10am-1pm at Havering Town Hall, Main Road, Romford. The Jobs Club is from 10am-1pm in the Betty Strathern Centre, Myrtle Road, Harold Hill.

To join the Jobs Club call John Bloss on 01708 433201 or Lee Osborne on 01708 433658. For more information call 01708 432824 or email keysforchange@havering.gov.uk.
