Supporting unemployed people


We are looking for community halls and centres that host or organise any kind of activity that plenty of unemployed people attend. It could be something like a job club, which directly aims to support people who aren’t in paid work. Or it could simply be an activity which brings lots of out of work people in to your building – like a parent and toddler group, a food bank, or a support group for people with mental health difficulties.

If you’ve already got a social enterprise idea and could get some local people on board, then we can set up some training and mentoring to help get your idea up and running. Or we can give a talk at one of the activity’s normal meetings to introduce the idea of social enterprise and tell people about the training we can offer. Do you think something like this might benefit your community? Then drop us a line!

We’re a partner in the Inspiring Enterprise programme, which is funded through the Lottery’s Building Better Opportunities scheme and the European Social Fund. We need your help in connecting with unemployed people across western, central, and northern Hampshire. Contact us if you’d like to get involved, and also see our website for more details about the programme (including a map of the eligible area).
