Employment Services

Finding a job can help people to increase their confidence and self-worth, boost their income, and escape long-term poverty.

All things that people need to build a brighter future for themselves and their family.

Changing Lives are committed to helping people who are unemployed to overcome the barriers they may face and find work.

Our dedicated employment teams help people to identify their goals and work towards them at their own pace, empowering them to take control of their future.

BBO projects are jointly funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund as part of their investment in local projects that tackle the root causes of poverty and social exclusion.

‘I first started with Changing Lives Employment Service to help me gain confidence, self belief and practical skills like interview techniques to get a job. A vacancy came up and I got the job! It was an immense feeling – very emotional, not just for me but my family too. The staff encouraged me to believe in myself – that was very important. I now feel, in society, that I’m equal. I can lift my head up and be proud of myself.’
