Get work-ready with Family Life

Since 2003 Family Life has been providing training and support to people attempting to enter, or re-enter, the workforce. The program, called PeopleWorx, offers hands on experience and training within our retail Opportunity Shops and warehouse distribution facility.

Initially, PeopleWorx focussed on supporting young people struggling to find employment. However the program evolved and, over the past 15 years, more than 1,000 disadvantaged and unemployed people (of all ages and abilities) have participated. Many have progressed on to employment, further education or volunteering after completion of the program.

With the support of the Bennelong and Brockhoff Foundations, Family Life is currently developing PeopleWorx 2.0, which will be piloted when we can in the future.

While this process is in place and COVID restrictions continue we are unable to take on any enrolments.

Thank you for considering Family Life to support you in your pathway into employment. We wish you every success in your endeavours and look forward to sharing updates about our PeopleWorx program in the not too distant future. Please follow us on social media or register for our newsletter for updates.
