Landau is leading a partnership of organisations delivering Building Better Opportunities provision in The Marches LEP area.
BBO Herefordshire runs from January 2017 to 31st December 2019. The Building Better Opportunities programme is jointly funded by the European Social Fund and the Big Lottery Fund to tackle the root causes of poverty, promote social inclusion, and drive local jobs and growth. The programme is delivered in 38 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) areas according to local priorities (see:www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/esf).
The project helps those furthest away from employment gain the skills and experience they need to get into work. BBO Herefordshire will work with people 19+ years across Herefordshire who are experiencing multiple barriers, resulting in social exclusion. The project will help participants gain skills and develop confidence through intensive personalised support to equip them with the abilities needed to move towards and into employment. It will also provide access to a wide and diverse range of volunteering opportunities, enabling more disadvantaged people to move into further education or training having acquired basic skills, increased confidence and motivation through participation in project activities.
Making Changes South Wye is here to support BBO participants find employment and source training or volunteering. We can assist with all aspects of returning to work including CV’s, Job search, completing applications and confidence building.
We are also able to support with budgeting and ensuring that you are better off when starting work, we will also continue to support you when you first start your job
We can also support BBO participants by contacting local employers on your behalf to arrange possible work placements and fill job vacancies
As long as you are over 19 we can help you. BBO participants do not have to be in receipt of benefits to access support.
