A new guide has been launched to help those who have been made redundant or un-employed during lockdown.

County Council is Here 2 Help You Re-Enter Employment 
 
An ‘Entry to Employment Services’ guide has been launched to help those who have been made redundant or un-employed during the Coronavirus pandemic.
 
The guide aims to showcase the support that is available across the county for those who have experienced a major career change over the last few months.
 
33 services are included within the guide, and the Skills 4 Worcestershire webpage has been re-designed to try and make taking that next step as easy as possible. 
 
The guide has four dedicated sections: Advice and Guidance, Unemployment Support for 16-24’s, Unemployment Support for all, and Redundancy Support.
 
Each listed service has its own designated space in the guide, what each service are currently offering and how they may be able to help you is clearly outlined, and contact details are easy to find. 
 
Councillor Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Education and Skills, said: “I’m really pleased we’re ready to launch our Entry to Employment Services guide. The coronavirus pandemic has changed so much for so many people over the last few months, so it’s important that we do all we can to help make people aware of the options that are available to them right here in Worcestershire. 

With everything changing so quickly, one thing that must stay the same is our commitment to making sure our residents get the right help and support. It is absolutely vital and has been a huge part of our response to the pandemic before, and it must continue.”
