The new suite, situated within the Salvation Army’s Wandsworth Corps in Battersea, has been funded through Working Capital, an innovative pilot project delivered by APM on behalf of Central London Forward.
Lorraine Western, Health and Wellbeing Lead for Working Capital said: “We enjoy a tremendous local relationship with Katy Shubotham, Captain of the Salvation Army in Wandsworth.
“Katy and her team are very supportive partners of our Working Capital delivery, which has facilitated the delivery of group and one-to-one sessions within their facility.
“Our investment in an IT suite will allow the Salvation Army to now run additional employability sessions from job search computers, creating a lasting legacy for the Borough beyond the life of the Working Capital contract.”
The suite was officially launched by Shadow Minister for Disabled People, Marsha Decordova MP, at a specially organised employability event hosted by Salvation Army and including a range of community partners such as APM.
“It was wonderful to visit the Salvation Army in Wandsworth for their employability day,” said the MP.
“It was great to meet the team and encouraging to see the integration of services delivered in partnership for the benefit of local people.”
