The problems they face include low skills, lack of job readiness and inadequate access to information on suitable employment. These are made worse by their lack of secure accommodation. However, a range of specialist employment training projects is being developed for this group.
This study examines a variety of such schemes in London, suggesting how services could be improved in the future. It looks particularly at barriers to employment and training; the impact of housing on employment prospects; targeted employment training schemes and advice and support services.
