Support club for Worcester's job-seekers going from strength to strength

Worcester Editorial 20th Nov, 2023   0

A BRAND-new wellbeing job club and support service opened in Worcester in June of this year to support people who are looking to work towards gaining employment or training.

Three months down the line, and more than 120 people are already gaining support.

The service, managed and run by local charity Worcester Community Trust, is offering free weekly wellbeing job clubs and wellbeing activities, as well as workshops covering topics such as CV building, interview skills, steps to wellbeing, IT skills and gaining access to benefits.

Lisa-Jane Wall, Welfare Project Manager at Worcester Community Trust said: “We are absolutely delighted that within the first three months of opening our wellbeing job clubs we have already been able to support so many people. We are working with people from a wide range of backgrounds of all ages; and the feedback we are getting from clients is amazing.

There are also one-to-one appointments available for anybody looking for additional support around employability, wellbeing, confidence, and self-esteem. This includes helping people to manage any barriers to employment that they are facing such as financial or health related challenges.

The service is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and is due to run for at least the next four years. It is open to anybody aged 16+ whether they are currently in employment or not.
