If you live in King’s Lynn & West Norfolk and are not working, we can help you with your money issues, help you get online and get closer to finding paid work.
What can we offer?
- One to one support at local venues for people who are not currently in work.
- Up to 20 hours coaching on money, work or getting online.
We want to help people move closer to the job market by helping them feel more confident and in control of their money, by helping them get on-line and by giving them the tools to be able to look for work.
We are a local charity and all of our support is completely free and voluntary – there’s no hidden catches!
Who is the project for?
We work out of various venues in and around King’s Lynn as well as the surrounding rural areas.
To be able to be enrolled on the project, you must have the right to live and work in the UK, and not be currently working. ‘Working’ includes permitted work, maternity, paternity and sick leave and occasional hours with zero hour contracts.
The project is for people who are furthest from the labour market and are at most risk of social exclusion. We might be able to help if you:
- are struggling to make ends meet
- have accessed crisis support e.g. foodbanks
- have significant priority debt
- live in households in which no-one works
- will be affected by benefits changes and/or are likely to struggle when Universal Credit is introduced locally.
