Council collaborates with local charity to support women back into work

MK Council has partnered with Works For Us, a local charity supporting women into work whose jobs have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

MKC is investing over £26,000 in the Women and Work development programme to help women who have recently lost their job, are at risk of redundancy or are looking to get back into work after a career break.


The courses are designed to help participants find roles that suit them, with support available on CV preparation, job applications and interviews. Works For Us also provides mobile tablets and internet packages for those with limited access to devices and the web.


Those interested in applying should visit www.worksforus.org.uk. You can also email at info@worksforus.org.uk or give them a call on 07852 963744.


The Works For Us programme is just one of the projects in the Council’s £2.25m economic recovery plan, with over 900 people and 600 businesses benefiting so far. MK Council is investing a further £223,560 in specific programmes aimed at supporting women into work who have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. Research suggests that women are almost twice as more likely as men to lose their jobs through the COVID-19 crisis.
