Are you an employer?
Do you need staff?
Are you willing to train and support people who are returning to work?
Do you want to contribute to your community?
If you can say yes to all of these questions then the Out-of-Work Service (OOWS) would like to hear from you.
The OOWS provides mentoring and employability support to people who are in recovery from substance misuse, alcohol misuse, or mental health conditions.
The main goal of the service is to help people to obtain and stay in work. To achieve this, the service works with employers who want to offer opportunities to people in recovery – training, placements, skills development, but most of all jobs.
The OOWS is available across Wales and employers can benefit from three months of advice and support from peer mentors if they employ someone referred by the service.
If you are looking for new employees, and are willing and able to offer work or training opportunities and some initial support to a new employee in recovery, then telephone Gofal in the Cwm Taf and Cardiff and Vale areas on 01443 845975; or Cyfle Cymru in North Wales, Dyfed, Powys, Gwent and Western Bay on 0300 777 2256.
