在這全球經濟不景,各界經費緊縮的當兒,求職無鬥,儲蓄不足者,嗚乎哀哉之餘,活在英國這福利制度國,可謂不幸中之大幸!
英國的福利制度主要分為七類:兒童和孕婦福利、傷殘或疾病者福利、退休福利、寡婦福利、失業福利、低收入人士福利及社會基金。
華心會「就業支援計劃」循服務使用者要求,特辦「就業與福利」工作坊,為服務使用者講解英國勞工就業組(Jobcentre Plus)為失業及求職人士所提供的福利及其他服務或支持。此計劃負責人將為服務使用者講解與勞工就業組的註冊程序,更進一歩分析各項有關福利如:求職者津貼(Jobseekers Allowance)、就業支助津貼(Employment & Support Allowance)、收入支助(Income Support)、傷殘津貼 (Incapacity Benefit),以助大家進一歩理解其中詳情,要甚麼條件、在甚麼情況下可申請哪項福利,及各項福利的分別。

In these times of economic difficulty, employment rates take a sharp dive and countless people not only find it harder to find work but also face more financial obstacles in their paths. However residents of England are entitled to receive financial help from the welfare state system. England's welfare system is extended to 7 main categories of beneficiaries- children, pregnant women, the incapacitated, pensioners, the widowed, unemployed and those from low income families.

In response to demand, the Employment and Benefits Workshop was planned to explain the benefit system and support lines already established by organisations such as JobCentre Plus. This project aims to explain the registration process by which the individual can obtain an allowance, the different types of allowance and support which can be obtained and aid the individual in identifying the financial benefits which best fit their needs and financial situation. This project also delves into the process of self-employment and the backing those wishing to become self-employed can expect from JobCentre Plus.

To clarify the criteria for participation, this project is only open to Chinese people with mental health issues wishing to gain employment. Mental health issues can range from mental illness to sleeping disorders, anxiety issues and stress, to feelings of isolation and helplessness. If you feel your personal situation matches any of these criteria please contact CMHA and Ms Wong at 020 7613 2008 for further information and to reserve a place at this instructive and rewarding workshop.
