Rossendale Works

Return to list of services

The Rossendale Works project will actively engage with economically inactive individuals by promoting engagement through sport, volunteering or activities.

Candidates will either be in receipt of out of work benefits or be disengaged completely from society. After completing a series of confidence enhancing activities they will be offered the opportunity of a work placement.

The DWP will also be directly referring individuals who have not been engaged in the first outreach stage to the placement programme. Benefit claimants through an SLA (Service Level Agreement) with the DWP will continue to be in receipt of their benefits and not mandated to complete other tasks during the period.

The placements will be at local businesses that are actively seeking to employ more people and will be visited to confirm suitability and enrolment into the project. The 4-8 week placement will be tailored to suit the needs, skills and interests of the individual. At the conclusion of the period they will either be offered employment or be given a reference to support them in their employment journey.

The project is part of the Lancashire Challenge through Sport Initiative.
