Our work, training and benefits advice service BOOST are one of the star case studies in the National Federation of ALMOs recent report, Building Opportunity: How social housing can support skills, talent and workforce development.

The report shines a light on the great work being done by social housing organisations to help their communities thrive. BOOST’s wide-ranging work supports not only job-ready Barnet residents but all those who are unemployed or want a change in career. This includes rough sleepers, graduates, people with disabilities, those furthest from the job market and those who lack confidence or motivation. Everyone BOOST work with is different, so they use a tailored, person-centred approach that helps clients to overcome their own barriers and get ready for employment.

The report looks at how working in partnership with Barnet Homes and other public sector support organisations across the borough, BOOST continues to deliver positive outcomes for the community and the council alike.
