What are Work Clubs?
The main aim of the Clubs is to help local people make the most of local knowledge and resources available and gain employment. Through this they will empower local communities and encourage people to work together to help themselves and others.
There is a lot of Work Club/Job Club provision across the county led by various organisations with various eligibility criteria – a number of these are listed on the ‘Find your local Work Clubs' page.
All Clubs aim provide unemployed people (or those looking for another job) with a place to meet and exchange skills, find opportunities, make contacts, share experiences and receive the support they need to help them into work.
Nottinghamshire Work Clubs are open to anyone and most importantly are informal and peer led. This self-organisation enables participants to decide what is best for them – each session will address issues and cover topics/skills relevant to the members. Members will swap ideas and can invite guest speakers who have pledged their time to come in and talk to them. Because Nottinghamshire Work Clubs are being developed following the self-help model, they will develop over a longer period of time and will be added to this website as they become established.
