Training and employment
We have continued to deliver and support training and employment projects to help people get back into employment.
We have been working with Moat Housing Association to manage three of their community hubs and deliver a range of services to support the local communities where they are located. Activities include youth services, training and employment support, inter-generation clubs and breakfast clubs.
The three hubs are:
- Warrior Avenue in Gravesend
- The Vineries in Gillingham
- Cavell Way in Sittingbourne.
Money Advice Service
We are delivering a project on behalf of the Money Advice Service to see how sound money management advice can help apprentices and trainees make better financial decisions. The project involves volunteers aged 16-24 living in Sevenoaks, Maidstone and Medway who have left school and are starting to live independently.
The service focuses on raising the aspirations of children and young people aged 8 to 25. We also support young people aged up to 24 with learning difficulties and disabilities to achieve their potential.
Our project is to attract, support, develop and train volunteers for all of the libraries across Kent, on behalf of Kent County Council.
