Some good news about funding

We are pleased that Wise Age has managed to get a further 3 small DWP contracts to help unemployed over 50s back to work in Hackney, Neham and Waltham Forest as well as EQUP offering funding to help local East enders who are workless but not formally registered as unemployed( for every one person aged 50+ who is registered for unemployment support there are 10 who are without work, most of whom want and need to work ).

So we can carry on helping older people find a job in East London . Now we hope we can widen our support to people across London and also help promote age diversity to employers
