Building Better Opportunities - West of England Works

The West Of England Works project is an exciting partnership which aims to help unemployed people in the West of England find employment.
Led by Weston College, the partnership will support at least 1537 young people and adults into gaining employment through a community based support programme.

At Creative Youth Network, we offer one to one job coaching support to young people through this partnership. We'll support you to overcome any barriers you might have to find employment. 

Funding for this project has come through the Building Better Opportunities, from The National Lottery Community Fund and European Social Fund.
