The Families and Communities Employment Service (FACES) offers professional and friendly one-to-one support to help you into work, training or education.
Our FACES coaches can also work with you to tackle any other difficulties in your life – from housing problems to debt or childcare – and make positive changes for the whole family.
FACES is made up of a team of work coaches and specialist caseworkers who work closely with individuals and families that have struggled to get into work and may be facing other problems in their lives.
On their first visit, your coach will sit down with you to hear about your work history and what kind of work, training and education you are interested in doing. They will also ask you about other areas in your life where you would like some help or want to make improvements.
