Communities for Work Plus

What is Communities for Work Plus?

Communities for Work Plus provides specialist employment advisory support and intensive mentoring to people who are either in or at risk of poverty who are not eligible for Communities for Work, PaCE or other regional programmes funded by the European Social Fund, and who have complex barriers to employment and training opportunities.

Communities for Work Plus can provide support to help to build your confidence, gain some work experience, learn new skills or re-write your CV. Communities for Work Plus will help you as an individual and will meet with you in your local community.  

What are the benefits of Communities for Work Plus?

Communities for Work Plus will provide you with intense mentoring and support, helping you to secure sustainable employment.

How does it work?

You will have your own mentor who will meet you at a convenient place near you. They will find out what help you need when they meet with you, and will agree next steps with you. There is no obligation to join Communities for Work Plus, it’s entirely up to you and you can decide whether Communities for Work Plus is for you following your meeting with your mentor. If you decide to join Communities for Work Plus, your mentor will arrange to meet or contact you on a regular basis to ensure you are getting the help you need to start work.
