Employment seekers can get help and support when Coventry Job Club and Advice Centre relaunches after Easter

THE TILE Hill Job Club and Advice Centre will relaunch on Tuesday, April 6, after a successful funding application by St Oswald’s Church and the Diocese of Coventry.

The cash has come from the European Social Fund, via Groundwork, and will see the much-needed service return for west Coventry, initially for six month.

Co-ordinator Duane Harwood has been appointed, along with and a team of volunteers trained by Citizens Advice.

Mr Harwood said: “I know what it’s like to be in crisis.

“I’ve had serious health issues and been out of work for long periods myself.

“I’m very grateful for specialist help to get me back on my feet.

“We are very much looking forward to supporting others facing similar circumstances.”

Tile Hill Community Partnership Chair, Coun Peter Male, said “The need to support each other through the coronavirus crisis and back into work has never been greater.

“This project has come at a perfect time as we slowly come out of lockdown.

“I hope people will get in touch.

“If the Job Club or Advice Centre can’t help directly, they will know someone who can.”

Advisers will be available at the socially-distanced Job Club at St Oswald’s Church Hall, Jardine Crescent, between 2pm and 4pm every Tuesday for anyone looking for work or training, or needing support with jobs or employment.

Those needing advice on benefits, housing, financial or other issues can drop into the advice centre at the church hall every Friday morning between 10am and 12pm.

Alternatively, remote support is available by phone or Zoom.

Call Mr Harwood on 07824 833717 or tilehilljobclub@gmail.com to make an appointment or for more information.

The project is part of the ESF Community Grants programme, led by community charity Groundwork UK, that gives funding to small organisations in the voluntary and community sector to support unemployed and inactive individuals.
