What is the PSEG Project?

The Peer Support Employment Group Project is for people who are over the age of 25 who are looking to get into work and are: 

  • Eligible to work in the UK
  • Unemployed or economically inactive and not engaging in any paid work at all
  • Experiencing a mild to moderate common mental health condition
  • Not receiving employment support on the JCP Work Programme or from another BBO funded project
  • Living within the specified Harrow electoral wards which are: Belmont, Canons, Edgware, Harrow on the Hill, Harrow Weald, Hatch End, Headstone North, Headstone South, Kenton East, Kenton West, Pinner, Pinner South, Queensbury, Rayners Lane, Roxeth, Stanmore Park, West Harrow

The project combines 1-to-1 employment advisor support with a unique peer support element to offer both practical support in job searching, alongside opportunities to improve skills, enhance wellbeing and find a supportive peer group with shared experiences.

What can a participant expect from the project?

Support from an employment advisor

Participants will receive support with job searching, CV writing and interview skills, as well as psycho-educational support through workshops, exploring areas such as mindfulness, goal-setting and managing anxiety. Participants will also receive up to 6 months tapered support once they enter employment. 

Peer support

Peer support is at the heart of the PSEG Project and gives participants with shared experience of mental health issues the opportunity to support each other as they make steps towards returning to work, or entering employment for the first time. Participants will have unlimited access to Peer Support
