Weclome to the Neighbourhood Action Plan
When communities work with each other and with local services, there are more opportunities to listen, understand each other and shape services that work. It builds skills which can lead to volunteering or employment and create a greater sense of belonging across communities and neighbourhoods. Supporting communities to develop networks with friends and neighbours creates more community activities, reducing social isolation, improving wellbeing, and reducing the need for more specialist services. This NAP aims to fulfil the commitment within the Brighton and Hove Collaboration Framework working collaboratively to improve and develop East Brighton.

Free Course Help Finding Work Or Changing Careers

Albion in the Community (AITC) has teamed up with American Express to provide a free course for anyone aged 19 or over who is looking for help finding work or changing careers.

AITC and Amex have been running Work Ready together for eight years and the next course takes place over two days on Wednesday 6th June, at the American Express Community Stadium, and Tuesday 12th June, at Amex’s 1 John Street offices.

 

The Course will cover a range of subjects, including CV writing, social networking, job searching, interview techniques and communication skills.

Volunteers from Amex will act as mentors and the programme is completely free to participants.

James Coupland attended a previous course and credits Work Ready with helping him find regular employment. He was homeless and facing a range of challenges in his personal life but now works as a steward at Albion games.

He said: “The people running it recognised I couldn’t commit to a nine-to-five job and gave me the support I needed. They really helped me get to where I am now.”

Christine Olson, Vice President at American Express, is one of the mentors. She said: “Work Ready is a great way to engage job seekers of all ages, whether they are looking for their first job, a career change, or returners to work. As a mentor, it’s great to be able to see how you’ve helped or motivated them, even in a small way, to achieve their goals.”
