What is Income Support
Income Support helps people who do not have enough to live on. It is only available for certain groups of people who do not get Jobseeker’s Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance and are not in full time employment.
The actual amount you get depends on your circumstances. Income support is a means-tested benefit which means entitlement is based on your income and savings and other capital, which will be looked at to see if they are low enough for you to qualify.
Income Support can be paid on its own if you have no other income or can top-up other benefits or part time earnings to the basic amount the law says you need to live on.
Another project in 2016 was based around training and help with CVs and application form. The course proved successful that by 2017 they had trained over a 250 people and seen over 100 clients find employment. We help people in the skills they need to find and hold down a job or a vocational course, build up their self-confidence, and then continue to support them once they finish.
In the era of social media, LinkedIN and online portfolios, CVs can seem outdated. But, whether you’re seeking new opportunities through networking, or traditionally through hiring managers and recruiters, the 2 page document is still a key tool to get you an interview.
