Building Better Opportunities Stafford & South Staffordshire is a jointly funded project by The National Lottery Community Fund and European Social Fund, aimed at supporting people living in Stafford and South Staffordshire who are out-of-work.

There are many reasons people are unable to work; this could be health reasons, childcare issues, financial restrictions, losing benefits, a lack of self-esteem or confidence, no access to transport or suitable clothing for interviews, or maybe just an out-of-date CV.  The list really is endless and often overwhelming. It’s our job to help you take the steps towards becoming work ready.

We aren’t here to force you into work, we’re here to help and support you to be the best version of yourself; to help you to become healthier, happier and have the skills needed to take a step closer towards training and/or employment. We do this through a range of one-to-one support and tailored training to boost your confidence and wellbeing.

The programme is completely free meaning you’re able to focus 100% on improving your personal, financial and employability skills one step at a time.
