Who We Are

The government requires Ealing Council Connexions Service to support all young people aged 13 – 19 or up to 25 years old if you have a disability or learning difficulty, to make informed choices about education, training and employment.

Our experienced advisors are based in schools and youth centres (Ealing Westside). They can give you information, advice and guidance to help you choose the right course, apprenticeship, training or employment option for you.

Advisors can also help you access benefit schemes. Also, if you are not at school, new to Ealing, a traveller, or at risk of becoming unemployed, then they can put you in touch with people who offer more specialist support services.

In order for us to provide support to those young people that most need it, we need to check what all young people aged 16 and over are doing in terms of education, training and employment. We find out what young people are doing in a variety of ways e.g. through schools and colleges but sometimes we phone, email and text young people or in some cases, even visit them at home. (At the moment, due to the Covid 19 pandemic, some of our advisers are working remotely which means you may get a call from a mobile number or through Skype)

Most young people will stay on in 6th form or go to college. However, some won’t have the offer of a place, or just need some extra support in applying for college, an apprenticeship or a job. It would be helpful if you let us know your up-to-date plans as this enables us to target our resources at the people that need it most.

If you need support in different areas of your life, our advisers can help you link with other professionals who provide counselling and support with issues affecting your life such as: health, benefits, housing, drug or alcohol misuse, relationships and pregnancy etc. Contact us for more info connexionsinfo@ealing.gov.uk
