Communities for Work+

What is it?

Communities for Work+ supports people who are over 20 years old and who are not in employment, education and training and are underrepresented in the labour market, find work and stay in work.

Employers who are looking to recruit new employees can access support through the local delivery teams which operate across Wales.

Specialist support is available for the individual from local teams who work intensively with participants to help them overcome their barriers to employment, providing employment training for new certification or new skills, tools and clothing to start work, and childcare and travel costs if these are preventing them gaining employment.

The Communities for Work+ team will work with you to support your recruitment needs and identify participants with skills which suit your business.  When appropriate, job fairs and recruitment days will be organised to promote job opportunities to programme participants and the wider community.

What are the benefits?

Businesses who take on individuals through Communities for Work+ will be helping those furthest from the labour market to enter employment. You’ll be able to tap into motivated individuals who are determined to make the most of an opportunity to enter the labour market.
