Parental Employment Support Fund (PESF)

Are you a working parent aiming for the next step on the career ladder?

Do you need help to do this?

We may be able to help you if you are in any of these eligible groups:

  • Lone parent
  • Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic
  • Youngest child under 1 year
  • Parent aged under 25
  • Disabled parent
  • Parent with 3+ children

PESF is voluntary and offers person-centred help for parents to look at their barriers to progressing in work.

This might include:

  • Support to gain a qualification
  • Help with improving skills or work experience
  • Money advice
  • Motivational support

To be eligible for PESF, you need to be in one of the target groups, have the right to live and work in the UK and need some in-work support.

If this is you, or anyone you know, contact the Employment and Training Unit to find out more:
