Employment & Training programme for women

Catalyst Gateway has joined forces with East Thames, the European Union Social and London Councils for an initiative which helps women aged 20+ find work and training.

The ‘WISH’ programme can offer you:

  • Career action planning
  • CV writing and interview skills
  •  Confidence building techniques
  • 1-2-1 job search sessions
  • Training in literacy, numeracy and ESOL (English, for Speakers of Other Languages)
  •  Payment of childcare costs where possible
  • Work placements in local companies, plus much more.


Participants must be unemployed, over 20 years old and in receipt of Income Support, Employment Support Allowance and Jobseekers Allowance (less than one year).

If the answer is yes to all the above, please call John O’Sullivan on 0845 437 9705 or email

You can also drop into our surgery at the Annex (blue portacabin), 370 Portobello Road, W10 5RP every Thursday between 2pm to 5pm to speak to an advisor.
