Are you experiencing in-work poverty, unemployment, living on minimum wage or struggling to pay basic monthly outgoings on sporadic zero hour contracts? Communities For Work Plus may be able to support you.
Communities For Work Plus
Communities For Work Plus is a Welsh Government funded project, delivered by Ceredigion County Council which supports individuals aged 16 or over who are in or at risk of poverty, throughout Ceredigion.
Participants may be experiencing in-work poverty, unemployment, living on minimum wage or struggling to pay basic monthly outgoings on sporadic zero hour contracts.
Mentors provide 1:1 support for participants with writing the perfect job application and CV, support with job seeking, undertaking mock interviews, interview skills, confidence building, up-skilling and we can fund a wide variety of training.
Training courses range from First Aid qualifications, retail or healthcare, construction safety cards, security licences and much more.
If you think the project may be able to help you or if you would like more information, contact the team on 01545 574193 or email TCC-EST@ceredigion.gov.uk.
In addition, get in touch if you are an employer and have any opportunities for participants to undertake work experience or a paid work opportunity (funded by Communities For Work Plus).

The Workways+ scheme offers training, qualifications, volunteering placements, paid work experience opportunities and a personal mentoring service to help people get their lives back on track.
So, if you’re aged 25 years or over and you are not in employment (and not in education or training) we would love to hear from you.
Support will be able to help people affected by work-limiting health conditions or disabilities; Carers; those with low or no qualifications; people with childcare responsibilities; the over 54’s; people in a single adult or jobless household or anyone from a Black Minority Ethnic group
Workways + will offer you one-to-one mentoring support with job seeking, writing the perfect job application and CV, interview skills and confidence building. We can pay for qualifications and training, and for some participants, a paid temporary job with a local employer.
