Building Better Opportunities: Supporting people on the path to employment

Working Progress Building Better Opportunities (BBO) provides personalised support to help people into or closer to paid employment.

The scheme, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and European Social Fund, enables us to identify together the hurdles which are preventing people from starting out, or returning to employment. Whether they have been away from the workplace due to family commitments, illness or disability, time in prison, or have never had a paid job- we are here to help.

At the Daventry Volunteer Centre our Building Better Opportunities project offers a range of support for anyone thinking about finding paid work including:-

  • Training
  • Coaching and mentoring
  • CV writing
  • Skills development
  • Confidence building
  • Job searching and applications
  • Counselling through difficult issues

To participate in the scheme you need to be eligible to live and work in the UK, and currently not in work.
