Keeping It Local: Employment support during the Covid-19 pandemic

HACT worked with Town & Country Housing and Clarion Futures during 2020 to reflect on their employment and training offer in West Kent. Many decisions and adaptions had to be made quickly, some of which will inform future service delivery. There is no neat division between crisis and recovery, especially in the context of the health and economic uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Reflecting on the response of both social housing organisations is an important exercise in learning from emerging good practice, so they can remain insight-led.

Clarion Housing Group is a business for social purpose, and delivers a range of support, skills and opportunities to residents across the UK through its charitable foundation Clarion Futures. Town and Country Housing has a different approach, coordinating support for residents in partnership with the voluntary and community sector. Both organisations are committed to a range of resident services including pre-employment and in-work support.
