Digbeth’s iSE (initiative for Social Entrepreneurs) have been awarded an ESF grant by Birmingham and Black Country Community Foundation to support unemployed residents into work through a mixture of soft skill development, mentoring and work experience.
The project will aim to develop the skills of unemployed people living in Digbeth and parts of Highgate by linking them with work experience placements within local social enterprises, community groups, charities, small businesses and not-for profit organisations operating in the area. It is hoped that this project will not only help remove barriers to employment and assist local people to move closer to the labour market but also encourage residents to become more involved in their community.
Digbeth Residents Association is proud to support Enterprise Match. If you are a local organisation that wants to be involved in the project by offering work experience placements, please visit the iSE website to learn more. Equally, if you are an unemployed resident of Digbeth or Highgate that is keen to participate in this initiative, then please contact Kathy on 0121 771 1411 or Kathy.firstname.lastname@example.org.
