This service provides support for people who are in employment (supported, paid or voluntary), training, education or are working towards any of these.  As well as one to one and group support, service users are supported to attnd our Work Group )registered with and approved by Jobcentre Plus), where they work on building a CV, looking for work, applying for jobs, training or education; building up interview skills; access universal job match; use the internet to serch for emplyment and work on coping skills in the workplace.

For those who are not yet ready to go into employment, there is a MAST Group (Multi Agency Support Team) where people from our organisation and partner organisations work together to gain an SVQ level 3 or 4.  They also use ILA grants to access college courses and attend shourt courses in local libraries.

For those already in employment, regulations state that if a person is in supported employment, they can only continue this for more than 12 months if they are supported by a third sector organistion.  We act as this organisation.
