Building Better Opportunities Stafford & South Staffordshire

We support people who are unemployed to get their life back on track.  Our programme is unique in that it looks at all areas of your life and supports you to overcome the barriers you’re facing in aspects of your life.  We want you to be happy and healthy so that in the future you feel capable and confident enough to apply for work. Some people may not be looking for full-time work, but would like to work part-time or to do volunteering in the community. We can also support you to find volunteering opportunities or work placements to improve your skills, your CV and most importantly improve yourself.

The journey to get to that point will be different for every person and that’s what makes our programme special; we treat you as the unique individual you are, we respect that everyone’s story is different and we empower you to live your best life.  We listen to you, support you and put you first.

Courses available in:

  • First aid

  • Food safety
  • Manual Handling
