Extra Information

See below for other organisations we partner with.


The Employment Related Services Association (ERSA) is the trade body for organisations delivering or with an interest in employment related services - sometimes called welfare to work.  Established in 2005, we exist to help our members achieve their shared goal: to help people gain sustainable employment.

ERSA represents organisations that deliver, or have an interest in the delivery, of employment related services. The scope of our reach includes skills provision, self-employment, offender related services, welfare reform and disability-related issues, as well as the design and delivery of employment programmes.

Our membership spans the private, voluntary and public sectors and it is this diversity that gives ERSA the authority to speak on behalf of the entire employment related services sector.  ERSA's members range from multi-nationals through to small specialist charities operating in their local communities.

There have been a range of welfare changes over the last few years, impacting on many of the people we support. It can often be difficult to figure out the benefits people are entitled to or the best advice to give.  

To support service users to be better informed we are working with Turn2Us - an organisation that helps people in financial need gain access to welfare benefits, charitable grants and other financial help. Support is offered online, by phone and face to face through local partner organisations. As well as information on over 3000 grant giving organisations, the website also has a very helpful benefits calculator which allows individuals to find out the benefits they are entitled to and the amount they should receive. It also allows people to compare a range of different scenarios, for example how much an individual would receive in benefits versus working. All of our services have access to Turn2Us and bespoke training sessions.
