Finances, Skills and Futures

Vale Homes and the Vale Opportunity Knocks project has recently launched the Finances, Skills and Futures (FSF) project aimed at helping people manage money, develop skills and secure future employment.

If you claim Universal Credit, you could be entitled to support with:

  • Budgeting and money

  • Confidence building

  • Securing employment

  • Universal Credit and benefits claims

  • Housing

  • Digital skills

The project has been developed to support job seekers following the coronavirus pandemic and will be delivered in three stages:

 

  • Firstly, participants will receive support on managing their finances, claiming benefits and with matters relating to Universal Credit claims.

 

  • Secondly, participants will undergo skills assessments and receive training and development opportunities, including confidence building and digital skills. Participants will also be able to access additional support services for things like mental health and drug or alcohol dependency.

 

  • Finally, the project will provide hands-on support to help participants gain secure employment opportunities and work experience placements. They’ll also be able to gain accredited qualifications within their chosen career path.

 

The project is being funded by the DWP and will be delivered by Vale Homes and the Opportunity Knocks Program over the next 12 months.
