New work club in Stafford

Thu 7 Feb 2019

The Stafford and South Staffs Building Better Opportunities partnership is pleased to announce that there is an extra work club in Stafford to offer an even wide range of opportunities for local people to access advice and help that can literally change their lives. 

The new work club is in the Innovation Suite at Stafford Library on Thursday afternoons, 2pm to 4pm.This is in addition to the one at Stafford Library on Monday mornings, 10am to 12pm and also work clubs at Holmcroft Library on Monday afternoons, 2pm to 4pm; at Rising Brook Library on Tuesday mornings 10am to 12pm; and at The Northfield Centre on Wednesday mornings, 10am to 12pm.

These five weekly drop in sessions in Stafford are run by Support Staffordshire as part of the Building Better Opportunities programme, funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund. If you have service users, or know anyone living in the Stafford or South Staffordshire districts, who is currently unemployed or not working, they can get free advice and support from people who can help them tackle many of the issues that may be getting in the way of finding a job or starting a new career. The support on offer includes help from Citizens Advice, IT support, careers guidance and access to training and volunteering.

Advisors can also come out to your organisation to explain the support on offer from BBO to you and your service users.
