Passengers on Bus to Work bus
Project CompleteThe Bus to Work service was terminated one month early at the end of February 2011 following a decline in passenger numbers after the Christmas period. Passengers took the view that an excellent service and support had been provided and that they had been given adequate time to address independent transport solutions of their own – the ideal outcome for any pilot programme! The service exceeded initial forecast outputs, providing 66 unemployed people from Bolsover district with transport to jobs they wouldn't have been able to access.

Family Employment Initiative

 

About the project...

The Family Employment Initiative (FEI) works with families and households to break down barriers to employment. FEI advisors visit hard to reach families and individuals in homes and other accessible locations.  Funding from WNF expanded the Bolsover district team from 4.5 to 5.5 Advisers.  A further extension to the project was the provision of a Community Nurse to work as a member of the existing FEI team.  The Nurse accompanied advisers to provide responsive health advice, carry out home based health checks, support families to make better health choices, re-engage people with primary health, and run bespoke sessions on topics that emerged linking improved health to reduced worklessness.
