Welsh government employability programmes
Conwy Employment Hub runs the following Welsh Government Employability Programmes:
Communities for Work (CfW)
CFW is a Welsh Government Employability Programme supported by the European Social Fund. It is entirely voluntary and provides intensive mentoring support to help people develop their confidence and their skills as well as to find and maintain employment. It works with three specific groups:
- Long-term unemployed people aged 25 and over
- Economically inactive people aged 25 and over
- Young people aged 16-24 not in employment, education or training (NEET)
CfW is a postcoded programme which works in partnership with DWP and is due to end in March 2023.
Communities for Work Plus (CfW+)
CfW+ is a Welsh Government Funded Employability Programme that supports CfW and operates in a similar way in providing intensive mentoring support to help people develop their confidence and their skills and to find and maintain employment. Its difference is that it helps people who are either in or at risk of poverty, and it’s available throughout the county.
PaCE is a programme that supports parents who are finding childcare costs are preventing them from training or working. It helps find and fund solutions to overcome childcare barriers to enable parents/guardians to prepare for and access employment opportunities.
The Hub also works with and promotes the Cynnydd/Progress Scheme which is core funded by the Conwy Youth Service. This is a voluntary programme for young people aged 16-24 who are at risk of being Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET),and while it is similar to the Welsh Government’s Communities for Work programme, it is for the young people that are most hard to reach to provide them with the best possible guidance, care and help to build a better future whatever they are facing.
