We understand that accessing employment and volunteering is not easy especially if you need to develop your skills and self-confidence first.
Wider Than Work is a DWP funded (and internal referral only*) programme designed to focus on the steps before employment. We will help you to develop the skills and confidence to make thinking about work or volunteering a possibility.
Wider Than Work is a service designed to help you improve your well-being:
• Build your confidence
• Support to access activities
• Improve skills to help with your volunteering and work in the future
• One-to-one support
• At your pace
If you are interested in the Wider Than Work service speak to your *work coach at your local job centre and they will be able to refer you.
This is a partnership project led by the Southmead Development Trust in partnership with Barton Hill Settlement, the Wellspring Healthy Living Centre, Knowle West Health Park and The Park and is funded by the DWP.
