Support & Information

Access to Community Services

ESRA work with many local community networks to broaden the type of support available.:

  • Community Voluntary Service network - providing access to voluntary work
  • Clinical networks - community mental health teams, GPs, local IAPT service; provide us with access to appropriate clinical support.
  • Employment 'surgeries', outreach at GP surgeries, email and phone support / advice. Clinicians regularly provide our customers and employers with training
  • Strong links to local education providers
  • Access to supported training including I.T., office skills, Arts and Horticulture
  • Housing Associations. Both as a source of referrals and an option for us to refer to
  • Jobcentre Plus. The DEA's and other advisors are regular visitors to our offices and our strong relationships mean we are often able to access referrals and information / advice that individuals would not otherwise have.
