Better Off Fund: Confidence, Resilience and Employment Help

The Better Off Fund is a fully-funded employment help support package available to individuals in the Liverpool City Region who are currently:

 

  • Unemployed

  • Looking to upskill,

  • Retrain, or

  • Enhance their employment and career prospects.

  •  

Whether you’re out of work because of redundancy, maternity leave, or other personal circumstances, the Better Off Fund aims to provide the employment help you need to get back on your feet.

The programme helps break down financial barriers by offering full and complete access to our services, without it putting any additional pressure on your pocket. It offers a range of free courses for the unemployed, including managing your personal finances, building your confidence, and preparing for interviews.  In addition, participants will be given travel and lunch expenses, small grants for digital resources – such as mobile phone top ups, data dongles, WiFI etc – as well as access to free childcare to support single parents.

As the UK cost-of-living crisis looks set to continue, the Better Off Fund has been specifically designed to alleviate growing financial pressures and support the needs of individuals’ on the road back into employment.
