Due to a change in funding, as of 1st April we will only be able to provide support for clients based in South Bristol. Unfortunately we are no longer able to offer support as previously to clients based in North & Central Bristol.

Bristol City Council recognises that some areas of the city suffer from persistent unemployment and deprivation despite investment. In response to this, a Work Zone model has been developed to help address this for the long term.


What is a Work Zone?


Work Zone is bringing FREE employability support into communities with new ways of delivering a more integrated and coordinate approach to local employment support and learning. The Work Zone operating model was developed by a group of local organisations to establish a common set of protocols across into work service providers for cross referrals and core data collection.


Who is delivering the Work Zone service and where? 


HWV is delivering Information, Advice and Guidance across the city but mainly in the areas that suffer the most persistent unemployment and deprivation e.g. Hartcliffe, Withywood, Filwood, St Pauls, Easton, Lawrence Weston, Southmead and Avonmouth.

Work Zone advisors see clients in accessible community venues in their area.

They can see people at the beginning of their journey, referring for specialist advice and training. They will also see people who just need a new CV to get into work and provide them with in work support if needed.

They may refer to other BCC supported schemes such as Future Bright if they meet the eligibility criteria for that programme.
