As a training provider, helping people gain meaningful employment is one of our top priorities. We do this through funded projects to offer one-on-one personalised employment support, provide high-quality employability courses and training in a friendly and supportive environment.
In 2017, we successfully secured funding from the Big Lottery Fund to deliver their ‘Building Better Opportunities: Lots More to Offer’ project. The project focuses on unemployed people who are 45-years-old and over, and involves creating an app.
We are also a delivery partner for Sussex Community Development Trust. This employment service project is ‘Building Better Opportunities: Let’s Get Working’. The project focuses on people who are at least 16-years-old and have a physical disability or health condition.
Social Enterprise Kent are proud to be the lead delivery organisation for Lots More to Offer; a great project operating across Kent and East Sussex, which aims to bridge the employment, skills and confidence gap for those over the age of 45.
We understand the barriers often faced by those who have become isolated from the work market. But we also know the value those individuals can bring to the workplace once barriers are reduced.
We provide intensive, personally tailored and ongoing practical support for disadvantaged people over the age of 16, who are not in work or training due to a disability or long-term physical health condition.
Participants are assigned a dedicated Community Connector who will work closely with them to help them take their next steps towards employment, volunteering, work placements or getting involved in their local community.
