Support Staffordshire South Staffordshire work very closely with the local South Staffordshire Work Clubs. Our volunteer duty officers can usually be found offering advice on how volunteering can help job seekers gain vital skills that will help them into employment.

Our local work clubs work with volunteers, agencies, local employers, and job seekers to best help those who want to find employment. The aim of the work clubs is to give job seekers the knowledge, tools and confidence to help them step into employment.

The work clubs have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where you can chat over coffee, use the computers to check job listings, and take part in free training sessions to gain new qualifications.
