Hundreds of unemployed and marginalised Caerphilly families are set to benefit from the launch of a new job club at Love Caerphilly in Cardiff Road Caerphilly town centre.
The job club is part of a national employment initiative run by the charity Christians Against Poverty and will be staffed by volunteers who have undergone training. The aim is to offer extra support and practical advice to unemployed people in the Caerphilly area.
Since it was launched in 2012, Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Job Clubs have grown to a network of 163 across the UK, helping more than 1,000 people into work, many of them long-term unemployed.
Job Club Manager Lesley Thomas said:
Knowing many people are out of work and yet have talents and skills going to waste, we just felt we had to do something and Christians Against Poverty’s training and resources seemed like a really great fit for us.
The club will run weekly starting from March 1st at 1.30pm at Love Caerphilly, 76 Cardiff Road, Caerphilly. To find out more about CAP Job Clubs or to book your place visit www.capjobclubs.org or telephone 0800 328 0006
