Work and Training Support from Livin Futures

We go above and beyond to help our tenants to get into work. There are many ways we can help you as a Livin tenant, from free training opportunities to matching you with local job vacancies and improving your job hunting skills.

Kickstart scheme

The government has introduced a new Kickstart scheme to fund the creation of high-quality jobs for people aged 16 to 24 at the highest risk of long-term unemployment. We are delighted to have received funding for 41 paid work placements for our tenants.

Opportunities for young people

We have joined the #1mchances campaign to offer jobs, work experience and apprenticeships to you, our tenants.
