“Supporting you through the journey to work”

We are primarily associated with supporting people receiving Jobseekers Allowance, however we also provide support to those in receipt of Employment Support Allowance (ESA), Income Support, Carers Allowance and Universal Credit. Our main aim is to support people back to work and support them on their journey to a positive destination.

Our Work Coaches are available to support, guide and refer to relevant local provision and we are working in close partnership with East Renfrewshire Council to enable eligible clients on all benefits to access Voluntary Sector Opportunities through the flexible support project with access to Working Matters, specifically aimed at ESA customers.

JCP has a number of programmes to help you find work. JCP advisors can provide information on many of the following support services available in East Renfrewshire:

  • Health and Employability support
  • New Enterprise Allowance
  • Sector Based Work Academies
  • Support Contract
  • Work Experience.

We have many of the local services available for access within the Jobcentre and also deliver group sessions covering many subjects that inform and upskill all who participate.
