Job club launches in Fishguard
2:18pm Thursday 24th October 2013 in News
A NEW job club will be launched in Fishguard on November 5, to help local individuals find work.
The club is one of three clubs to start across South West Wales from domestic abuse organisation Hafan Cymru, and will add on to the existing service at the Popworks, Parc-y-Shwt.
Fishguard currently does not have a job centre, and the club aims to give better access for people struggling to find work by meeting every Tuesday 10am to 12pm.
The Job Club, run by Hafan Cymru’s Moving On Project , is funded by the WCVA and the European Social Fund. It provides a friendly informal environment for participants to come and gain new skills, refresh their CV and get support.
The club will be open to unemployed people over the age of 16.
Sue Mackie from Fishguard and Goodwick Young Persons Trust-Point said: ‘’Hafan Cymru will provide additional support to the young people of the area who are economically inactive and we are pleased to welcome The Moving On project to the Popworks Youth Centre.”
Hafan Cymru is a Wales-wide organisation that provides housing and support to women, men and children, the majority are those escaping domestic abuse.
“Since February of this year job clubs have successfully started in RCT, Blaenau Gwent, Carmarthen and Ceredigion. The Fishguard Job Club will build upon the success of the other counties”, added Jayne Regan, Development Manager for Moving On.
