The New Work Challenge programme supports unpaid Carers or former Carers living in Essex, excluding Southend and Thurrock, who are considering employment. This could be anything from applying for work or simply just taking the first steps to see what is out there and how achievable it might be.

We are already offering the European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) course for £50 – a huge discount from the original price of £599.99.  We were even able to pay the £50 for some participants.

We are also working with a Carer who has just started her first steps into becoming a teaching assistant, someone who is looking at dog grooming as a possible new career and someone who has already started in a Level 2 NVQ course. People who join the project may have an idea on what they want to do but making it a reality can be challenging or difficult for various reasons. Whatever your ideas might be, this project will offer any support it can to help.

To find out more or to register, please contact Paul Weaver by 31 December 2020, on 07511 900154 or email him on paul.weaver@affc.org.uk.
