Barwell Parish Council

Serving the people of Barwell



RCC a charity based in Hinckley are currently delivering an exciting project called Work Live Leicestershire which helps local people living in Leicestershire. This project finds people who are currently out of work, identifies any barriers facing them and then supports them on a 1-2-1 basis to help overcome each one - please see the attached poster for further details. The project is FREE TO ACCESS to people living in Leicestershire over 18 who is not in any paid work.

So if the project finds someone who wants a career working with animals but they do not have any work experience, then our partners will step in to help - Voluntary Action Leicestershire to action arrange some relevant volunteer experience (e.g. with an animal rescue centre) and a local job club to design and update their CV, as well as some mock interviews and free training on interview techniques. Similarly, if a single mum joins who wants to set up her own business but has no childcare support, then she will be signposted to free business advice via our partner CASE, with the project covering her childcare and transport costs.
