Like many organisations delivering learning during the coronavirus lockdown, PJ Arts Hub have taken to delivering their weekly arts based wellbeing sessions online.
In between Motivational Monday and Feel Good Friday sessions, PJ Arts Hub have guest speakers to motivate you on such things as gaining employment and skill development, to skills swap sessions to either learn new skills or share your own skills to help others.
Everyone needs a bit of encouragement and mental stimulation sometimes, and everyone is welcome to join the sessions.
By declaring any changes, people will be able to access the right support.
Not declaring a change in circumstances means potentially creating benefit overpayments. It could also mean missing out on Free School Meals, Universal Credit, support with Council Tax, rent or mortgage interest relief, and other financial support.
The best way to be sure is to encourage people to visit BetterOff Kirklees or our local Citizens Advice websites or helplines. This is where people can get help with working out what they are entitled to.
Sometimes we all need a boost of confidence or support to get us on the right track or back into work. Many of us might need this more than ever right now. It is great news then that Shape Lindley are running a back to employment programme for people aged 18 to 65.
It is FREE to attend and will be running over the summer from 27th July 2020.
Participants will have the opportunity to meet real employers through the programme, learn new skills and learn how to update and improve their CVs.
Worried that you won’t be able to attend because of childcare? Don’t be. Shape Lindley have an Ofsted registered provision for parents of Children under 5 to access and can provide a pick-up service from Town where necessary.
