We help disadvantaged people overcome barriers to paid or voluntary work with long-term practical and emotional support.

Based in North Bristol, West of England Works is a completely free and voluntary service supporting you to explore learning, volunteering and employment opportunities.

Working closely with an Employment Mentor, you’ll co-create a personalised plan of action. This way, the support you receive will relevant to your needs and at a pace you’re comfortable with.

We want as many people to take part as possible. To be eligible, you must be unemployed (not in work of any kind, including zero hours contracts) and have the right to live and work in the UK.

About the Project

The West Of England Works project is an exciting partnership which aims to help unemployed people in the West of England find employment.

Led by Weston College, the partnership includes a range of voluntary and community organisations based in Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, and Bath and North East Somerset. It will support at least 1537 young people and adults into gaining employment through a community-based support programme.

The project is part of the Building Better Opportunities programme, and has received £6 million of funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.
