Our Employment and Skills team enjoys a reputation for a high performance in supporting those furthest from the job market.
We particularly support never yet employed young people, and those with learning disabilities or on a mental health recovery pathway, to develop their skills and secure employment. Our programmes have a long established track record of success.
Our Industrial Unit in Chelmsley Wood provides work experience, volunteering opportunities and even employment to these same groups, providing experience of assembly and packing work to enhance their CVs and better equip them for the mainstream employment market. We have many case studies of successful alumni from our programme, exemplifying what we look to achieve for those who pass through our doors.
Our Community Development arm continues to drive forward projects aimed at developing capacity, strengthening cohesion and fostering new activities to engage local people, stimulate the young, get people active, improve health and wellbeing, connect the isolated and engender community pride.
Our work with the Big Local project in the Cars Area of Smiths Wood has helped local residents to launch a host of projects which have engaged much of the local community and introduced regular activities with a wide range of participants of all ages, progressively transforming the area.
