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.
Clem’s Garden are working with Lindley Covid Mutual Aid Group to brighten up the lives of local people in the area. Clem’s Garden CIC is a social enterprise in Huddersfield. It’s run by local volunteers who don’t have children or grandchildren to channel their care, skills and experience into. They work together to grow and sell flowers, supporting local charities and community projects with the profits.
Their locally grown flowers are included in essential deliveries of food and medicine for those neighbours who don’t have family around or at the end of the phone for support. The group are also supplying HRI staff with bunches of flowers, to show their love and support for NHS staff.
Golcar Mutual Aid Group’s Food Buddies are also working with Clem’s Garden, delivering beautiful bunches of flowers once a fortnight to those who are unable to leave the house.
The Clem’s Garden volunteers have also pitched in to help with writing letters for care home residents who feel isolated, as part of a project co-ordinated by Volunteering Kirklees.

Clem’s Garden welcome new participants, including adult volunteers who have their own family, as ‘Friends of Clem’s Garden’.
Had a lovely catch up with the brilliant @ClemsGardenHQ this morning! Not just delivering flowers but their awesome volunteers have been more than willing to help with our letter writing project at the drop of a hat too! Lovely write up @kirkdemocracy 😊 https://t.co/yCerIc6kMb
