Our Community Employment team run specially designed courses for small groups of people.
These courses look at employment skills like CV writing and interview techniques, and digital things like using dropbox and applying for jobs online. We encourage people to think about the things they take for granted, which are very useful skills in a workplace. We help people to develop coping strategies and ways to stay well at a pace which is comfortable for them. We help people to have the confidence to ‘go for it’.

He blossomed within the course and volunteered in a busy reception, meeting and greeting members of the public. He’s now has a paid job in the NHS
