New provision to support participants

Joanne McKechnie, Contracts Manager

As part of our Skills Path programme, we are delighted to launch our new Chatty Cafe social hub and one-day confidence-boosting radio course to support our participants, in partnership with Chelmsford Community Radio.

We recognise some people joining our programme need support to build their confidence before applying for jobs, and our two new initiatives will address this need in a fun and informal environment.

Held weekly, it’s aim will be to develop social skills, build confidence through conversation, share
