Ways to Work
Year End UpdateThe majority of targets were exceeded for 2011/12. Working with 2 Shires Credit Union has helped beneficiaries to save and purchase their bikes at the end of the loan period, and a new arrangement with Groundwork has resulted in Ways to Work being able to purchase reconditioned bikes for a fraction of the cost. Rural Action Derbyshire has also been successful in securing funding from Derbyshire County Council, Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Bolsover District Council to enable Ways to Work to continue into 2012/13.

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.
