Employment support and training

Please note:  Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the decision to close our community hubs in Westwood, South Bretton and Welland, and cease all community activities and training courses for the foreseeable future. We will also not be running our Work Clubs around the city. The WestRaven Big Local café and garden will also be closed for the time being. This is to  protect our employees, customers and the wider community in which we work. For more information on our service during the coronavirus outbreak, please read our latest news and updates
