Thanks to DWP funding: New project starts – The Employment Support programme

YSS successfully applied for grant funding from the DWP, to deliver an Employment Support Programme.  The Programme commenced on Wednesday 8th April 2015 and runs through until 31st March 2016.  Together with funding  from  the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner  grant  fund for a  new class room, the  Carden Street Experience  continues with this latest  new programme.

David Andrewartha, YSS Operations Manager  said ” The Employment support programme is an exciting new venture for YSS and I m sure it will be a huge success. It is  open  to any offender/ ex offender, who is claiming benefits and not already engaging with the work programme, and referrals to the programme will be from the local Worcestershire job centre offices, Probation, Police and any other partnership agency, who we work with whose clients meet the eligibility criteria. Clients can also self refer in to the programme. The Programme will operate every Wednesday and Thursday, from 10.00am – 3.00pm from  YSS Carden Street Training and Enterprise  centre, in Worcester.

The focus of Thursday’s sessions, will be a pick of mix of job club sessions, this to include workshops delivered internally and by external organisations,  healthy eating sessions, Mental health sessions, as well as addressing independent living skills and motivation. 

The aim is to get the clients referred, a step closer to employment, no matter how long this journey may take.”
