Project Worker- Building Better Opportunities
I am Clare and I am a project worker on the Getting Cumbria to Work: Building Better Opportunities programme. This project seeks to provide support to individuals who are facing multiple and complex barriers to employment and who are furthest removed from the labour market. I support women to build their confidence through courses and activities, and offer one to one support with CV building and accessing education and training.
I completed a social work degree in 2014 and I have a background in supporting survivors of domestic abuse, housing and benefit support and family support work. I have been involved with the centre since it first opened through my previous roles, and was delighted to become a member of the team in November 2019.
