Community Welfare Rights support and accredited training courses supported by 'Unite the Union'
Local Councillor Zoe Fox, who also chairs the local ’community’ branch of ’Unite’ the union is spearheading a project to support local people with Welfare rights issues, computer access and accredited education in English, maths and IT.
The sessions will be run from
'All saints' community centre IT suite on Friday mornings 10.30-12.30,
start-date of Fri 21st April.
The project will initially be staffed by volunteers able to support people with difficulties accessing welfare advice and services. Volunteers will also ‘signpost’ people in need to appropriate sources of help and online resources including courses of education.
If there is demand then accredited courses in English, maths and It are available and will be delivered by an outside provider at the sessions.
Start-up funding has been secured and a number of qualified volunteers have pledged to help get the project off the ground. Further offers of help would be gratefully received and anyone interested in attending sessions or signing up for an 8 week accredited course is very welcome to contact Zoe on 01209 711791, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
