What is foundations4work?
Foundations for Work is an exciting new community project funded by the European Social Fund and Cornwall Council. The project provides local help for local people by offering tailored, one-to-one support, delivered by our highly skilled Work Mentors.
The service is free to anyone in the Cornwall area and seeks to empower participants with the self-belief, skills, motivation, and confidence to progress into employment, self-employment, or further training/education and build a brighter future for themselves.
Who can we work with?
People who are:
- On zero hours contracts
- Economically inactive
Where do We Work?
How can we help?
- We offer individualised support by working with participants on a 1:1 basis.
- A trusting professional relationship is established with the participant and potential barriers to employment are identified together
- Support is given to build confidence, self-esteem and motivation.
“I was struggling to stay motivated. He helped to identify where I needed support. I want to thank the team, and I want to encourage anyone who is unemployed to seek out Foundations for Work, as they will help in any way they can to best suit your needs”
“Keep on doing what you’re doing, you’re changing lives”
“I was lacking confidence when Jon started working with me. I went for a couple of interviews but got knocked back and wondered if I’d ever get a job I wanted. Jon’s persistence, help and advice kept me going. I now have a permanent job I enjoy and feel so much better within myself. Thanks Jon and the Foundations Team”
