Are you long term employment?
Building Better Opportunities can help
What is Building Better Opportunities?
Synolos is working with partner organisations to deliver a free programme to help transform the lives of the long-term unemployed.
The programme, Building Better Opportunities, is funded by the European Social Fund and the Big Lottery Fund. It will focus on helping the long-term unemployed across Oxfordshire get the skills and confidence they need to get into work.
Just 0.7 per cent of Oxfordshire residents were claiming Jobseeker's Allowance as of summer 2016. While this figure is low, the reality is that those who remain unemployed face significant barriers to entering the workplace. In addition to language and cultural barriers, nearly three quarters of them (70%) suffer from mental health issues or have experienced homelessness, addiction or offending histories.
