Agencies unite to support people back to work

More than a dozen agencies in Salisbury came together to find out more about a new back to work programme in the town.
 
Working Links, which runs the Links to Work programme across Wiltshire, organised the event on Tuesday 5 September at Bemerton Health Community Centre.
 
Fifteen different agencies attended, including John Baker House, The Trussell Trust, Jobcentre Plus, The Prince’s Trust, Pluss, Spurgeons, Turning Point, Wiltshire Council, Wiltshire Housing and Salisbury Medical Practice.
 
People out of work were keen to talk to the agencies, particularly Working Links’ employer services consultant who sources potential vacancies in the local area and give advice on returning to the workplace.
 
Links to Work is funded by the Department for Work and Pensions and European Social Fund. It aims to support more than 1,500 of Wiltshire’s unemployed people on their journey towards work.
 
The programme runs from three locations in Salisbury – the Bemerton Health Community Centre on Pinewood Way, Denise House on Endless Street and the SP2 Café on Fisherton Street.
 
To find out more about the programme, please call 0800 917 9262 or contact us.
