ENGIE's commitment to the Care Leaver Covenant

Full Details

ENGIE is aware of the significant gap between the educational and employment achievements of care levers and other young people, with more than double the rates of care leavers at 19 years old not being in education, employment or training (NEET) compared to children who have not been in the care system.  ENGIE is committed to supporting care leavers to have the opportunities they need to move to adulthood successfully and supports the Care Leaver Covenant (CLC), part of the Government’s ‘Keep on Caring’ strategy to support people leaving care to become independent.

ENGIE Places and Communities demonstrates its commitment to the aims of the Care Leaver Covenant, through specific actions and priorities tailored to our expertise, including;

Providing improvement to care leavers’ homes, based on ENGIE working in the local area of their property

  • The Community Impact Manager allocated to the relevant borough will contact CLC if budget/time allows to discuss opportunities for property improvements

Providing employment pathways and opportunities to care leavers, through participating in:

  • Employment training (CV writing, Interview skills)
  • Accredited training (Individual invitations to care leavers interested in attending construction related training)
  • Apprenticeship opportunities provided to care leavers attending the above (subject to apprentice positions/requirements on chosen contract)

Providing a range of work experience and volunteering opportunities for care leavers with ENGIE

  • Site and office-based work experience with ENGIE staff (the length of work experience can be tailored to care leavers availability and requirements)
  • Volunteering opportunities with our social value team – these range from garden projects, painting and decorating etc. to help care leavers to learn basic DIY skills
  • Places on ENGIE’s Kickstart Programme (individual invitations to ENGIE Kickstart programmes which include accredited training, employment training and hands on experience)

Providing a range of life skills programmes designed to ease care leavers into their new environment with ENGIE partnered organisations

The below courses are tailored towards CLC and not courses which ENGIE deliver regularly, therefore a minimum of 10 people would be required when providing the below.

  • Health and safety training (including basic first aid, fire hazards, slips, trips and falls)
  • Saving energy (Information provided by ENGIE to help care leavers to be energy efficient to reduce home energy bills)
  • Introduction to food preparation/hygiene (provided through Bermondsey Community Kitchen)
  • Banking, paying bills and budgeting (provided through Barclays Digital Eagles)

All commitments are based on care leavers living in an area where ENGIE is actively working. Details of these areas and the Community Impact Managers responsible have been sent to CLC, with them being updated regularly when these areas change.
