Description

Building Better Opportunities Stafford & South Staffordshire offer FREE training and support for unemployed people living in Stafford and South Staffordshire.

There are many reasons why people are unable to work; this could be health reasons, childcare issues, financial restrictions, losing benefits, a lack of self-esteem or confidence, no access to transport or suitable clothing for interviews, or maybe just an out-of-date CV. The list really is endless and often overwhelming.

It’s our job to help you take the steps towards feeling more able to work. We aren’t here to force you into work, we’re here to help and support you to be the best version of yourself; to help you to become healthier, happier and have the skills needed to take a step closer towards training and employment.

We do this through a range of one-to-one support and tailored training to boost your confidence and wellbeing. This could include animal therapy, work placements, yoga, meditation, anxiety and mental health workshops, confidence building activities, debt recovery, IT skills, access to computers and the internet, support with housing and benefits as well as so much more. The programme is completely free meaning you’re able to focus 100% on improving your personal, financial and employability skills one step at a time.

Every week we hold Work Clubs across Stafford and South Staffordshire where you can drop-in to access FREE support and chat with our experienced advisors.
