Team North Somerset are delivering ‘West of England Works’ as part of the ‘Building Better Opportunities’ provision and provide a personalised programme of support for the people across North Somerset who are facing multiple or complex barriers. We will help you to improve your confidence and wellbeing; make new friends; introduce you to volunteering, training or courses that can help you to progress. We will run group activities and special events where you can meet employers to help you feel better prepared for work. We will provide access to computers and offer supported job search.
We will officially launch after Easter 2017 when we will be based at our central hub. We will also be providing an outreach service around North Somerset so we are more accessible.
In the meantime you can gain our support and arrange to meet one of our friendly progression coaches at a location in North Somerset, convenient to you.
