Leicestershire County Council’s Work Clubs are helping rural people join the Work.Live.Leicestershire programme whilst also offering job search support. Currently operating in Hinkley and Coalville, our plans include pop-up services to reach more rurally based residents within the county.
Taking place in local libraries, the Work Clubs provide a friendly and equipped environment to access local support, opportunities and the services of other partner organisations. Computer facilities and experienced guidance enable people to build their digital skills and enhance access to local training, education and employment.
Volunteer Lisa (42), noted that the new plans would benefit more rurally based residents. “This project is aimed at people who are economically inactive. Being rural makes it even harder to get back into work.” Also help those who are unemployed too, the newest pop-up service will take place for 8 weeks from the 30th of April in Measham library from 10.15am to 12.15pm on Tuesdays.
The Work. Live. Leicestershire project is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund. For further updates on future pop-up plans, please contact us or alternatively follow us on Facebook or Twitter for live updates @workliveleic .
