Our Impact 2024-05-01T08:44:35+00:00

Since 2005 we have employed more than

400

people who’ve experienced or been at risk of homelessness to complete over

200,000+

hours of work.

We work with charities and organisations to reach people who are at high risk of or have lived experience of homelessness that could benefit from our training and employment opportunities.
We do that through the provision of flexible jobs in a friendly and supportive environment, as well as training and in-work support to those who may struggle to find or stay in work.

 

We have three main programmes on offer:

 

Connection Crew Academy: an engaging and hands-on three-day employment preparation programme aimed at those who are motivated by practical and physical work but would like to feel more confident in professional settings. We guarantee programme graduates a job interview with us for the role of Event Crew.

 

Part-time and Full-time Flexible Jobs as Event Crew: if your candidates are ready for work and looking for something varied and physical, then they can apply to join our crew. We provide a supportive environment and London Living Wage pay amongst other benefits.

 

Mentoring: we run a 12-week peer mentoring scheme that support new starters through their transition into work as  event crew. Mentors are experienced crew members who have received bespoke training and volunteer their time. Priority to this programme is given to new recruits under the age of 25 and those referred by our charity partners.

New Deal for Young People

Connection Crew is proud to be a recipient of New Deal for Young People funding from the Mayor of London.
City Hall is on a mission to develop a new deal for a generation of young people whose mental and physical wellbeing, safety, education and potential job prospects have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. It will focus on helping the most disadvantaged to reduce inequality and help create a fairer and more equal London.
This aligns directly with our mission to prevent and reduce homelessness through the provision of flexible jobs, training and mentoring, as young people facing social disadvantage are at high-risk of homelessness.
If you are an organisation representing young people affected by social disadvantage and the pandemic in South London, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at  adacemy@connectioncrew.co.uk  to arrange an introduction – we’d love to hear from you.
