Roots to Work

We are excited to announce that we are starting another Roots to Work, an employment support project, THIS SEPTEMBER, and spaces are still available!


‘Roots to Work’ is a great way to learn new skills, boost confidence, and meet new people and it starts on Monday 16th September. Every Monday will be a training day at Growing Together Westcliff, and then participants will get hands on experience for one day a week in our community gardens at either Westcliff, Rochford, Shoeburyness or Thundersley.


Participants will be able to build a portfolio during the Roots to Work project demonstrating their achievements and will be introduced to a range of employment, volunteering and training opportunities. 


Each participant will receive:

  • Keyworker support providing information, advice and guidance to access support with wellbeing
  • Support with self-care and presentation skills
  • Horticultural work experience and informal training
  • Employability Workshops with confidence and self-esteem building, job searching, job applications, CV writing, interview techniques, and work routines.
  • Accredited vocational training including First Aid, Food Hygiene and Manual Handling and referrals to  Job Club and support with seeking employment


If you would like to make a referral or would like make information please call us on 01702 213134.
