Simply through providing and supportingindividual empowerment .

Instead of promoting top-down state prescribed solutions Work Club members are empowered to collaborate with others to help themselves.


By helping people take ownership of their own job seeking in a safe space.

Work Clubs function on several levels:

  • Taking individual responsibility brings purpose and serves to raise self-esteem.
  • Helping one another expands networks, allows rejection/failures to be shared and successes celebrated.
  • Engaging with the community to help find work is also good for social cohesion as everyone shares in the process.
  • Addressing the specific needs of the locally unemployed people in the community where they operate.
  • By working in partnership with others such as local Chambers of Commerce, major employers, Job Centre Plus, CAB, Local Councils and other relevant organisations.
  • Work Clubs can combine local expertise to help produce successful outcomes and improve employment opportunities.
