Employment and training support

You are here:


If you are currently looking for work or if you have had difficulty getting and keeping work in the past, the Neighbourhood Justice Centre's Employment Pathways Officer can help you.

The Neighbourhood Justice Centre works with the Brotherhood of St Laurence in providing employment and training support.

The Brotherhood of St Laurence knows that gaining employment is critical in overcoming disadvantage. The employment and training support worker can:

  • Help with career assessments
  • Put you in touch with job agencies
  • Extend social support if you have faced significant barriers in getting a job
  • Support you in undertaking nationally accredited training courses
  • Support you in undertaking trial placements in supportive environments
  • Support you in undertaking a community project with a social purpose

All residents of the City of Yarra have access to these services, as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders with a strong connection to the area, and people who are homeless.

The services are free, confidential and tailored to your needs. Support can be organised quickly and easily and may be ongoing. 

To make an appointment telephone 9948 8777 or visit the information desk at the Centre, 241 Wellington St Collingwood Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.


Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that this website may contain images and voices of people who have died.
