We’re a leading provider of tailored services to help people maximise their potential. We deliver a range of innovative interventions to help create positive futures for people, their families and their communities – in Britain and beyond.
Set up in 2000, we make a difference every day. We have supported hundreds of thousands of people, often with varying needs, on a global scale as they look to improve their lives.
We are passionate about delivering excellent front-line public services, addressing challenges faced by socially-excluded people and delivering real value for money.
Working across society dealing with diverse needs and expectations, we offer valued and integrated services that meet the needs of the people we help. Our understanding and hands-on experience means we are also working together to shape and develop government policies to ensure they succeed for future societies.
We are a privately owned company and were acquired by Aurelius in 2016 to help us realise our potential and deliver the best results in the employability, learning and skills and justice sectors, as well as internationally.
Working Links was one of the first welfare to work providers to have been accredited with the Merlin Standard. The accreditation sets out a standard of behaviour designed to encourage excellence in supply chain management. In our most recent audit, we were awarded an ‘Excellent’ mark. And it’s extremely important we understand that we can’t work alone to help our customers.
Around 50% of our services are delivered through public, private and third sector partners.
This reflects the diverse nature of our business. Providing exceptional local knowledge and tailored experiences, our partners share our values, ethos and best practice. And they work with us to deliver our ambitions of social inclusion and economic prosperity.
In April 2016, we became a Living Wage accredited employer – paying at least £8.25 an hour, or £9.40 an hour in London.
