Good News for New Cross Gate

At a time when far too many services are being cut back, we are pleased to announce that New Cross Gate Trust has just secured 4 years funding from the Big Lottery Fund, worth a total of £380,000, to support a new community based employment support service. 
This new service aims to help local people improve their IT skills, gain valuable job related certificates, help people with CVS and interview skills, and support to develop their career paths. There will also be 1:1 guidance and support to access relevant training, work or volunteering experience. The service will include a new employment advice worker, an IT skills trainer, and will maintain our existing ESOL tutor.
The Service will be delivered from New Cross Learning (Mondays and Fridays), and Somerville Youth and Play Provision (Tuesdays). 
We are currently recruiting the new staff, and hope to have the service up and running by June. Watch this space for further details. 
“We are thrilled to be able to deliver this new community service in New Cross Gate. It is our intention to deliver a high quality service that is useful and relevant to local people’s needs and aspirations. We are currently recruiting for the posts and we plan to launch the service in June this year” Jenny Couper, Strategy and Partnerships Manager, NXG Trust.
