SERVICE UPDATE DURING COVID-19

Both the Norfolk Community College project and the New Horizons project continue to operate in a limited capacity despite the rapidly evolving Covid-19 situation. While it’s not currently possible to continue support project participants with coaching and mentoring in person, we’ve put in place a series of alternatives that are more accessible to local people:

Telephone and video support

  • Skills Connectors and Coaches from both projects will continue to offer one-to-one advice and support by telephone and video calls to participants.
  • Our team will continue to coach and upskill local people, giving them the skills necessary to find employment, training and work experience opportunities as they arise.
  • Our priority is to ensure that existing participants continue to receive support and that we can take on new referrals.

Training opportunities

  • A huge number of online training opportunities have come online over the last few weeks, including from our partners at East Coast College.
  • Our team are staying up to date with these rapidly developing offers and will still be able to connect you to a variety of training opportunities accessible from your home.

Employment opportunities

  • Although a lot of uncertainty surrounds employment at the moment, the current situation has also created a number of job opportunities for local people.
  • Our team are working closely with supermarkets and agencies to source both in-store staff and delivery drivers. These jobs are fully paid, available now, and urgently need filling to ensure that people have access to essential supplies such as food.
