Additional information about the Age of Opportunity

The aim of Age of Opportunity is to work with those over 50 who are currently out of work due to barriers or may need some support to tackle whatever is holding them back.

This programme is completely free and participation is of course voluntary.

Age of Opportunity can help with gaining basic IT skills, confidence building, CV building/ applications, managing money and budgeting, health, mental health and wellbeing and the list goes on. Whatever it is that is holding them back and if they need support they are eligible for support should they wish to enrol. 

To be eligible for this project you cannot be in any paid work of any kind and do not need to be immediately ready or feel under any pressure to find work.

There are no time constraints and someone can meet you anywhere that works for you, usually in a safe place in the community such as a community centre, local cafe, library, job centre etc or over the phone if preferred.
