Extra Support During COVID-19

Extra Support During COVID-19

We are excited to share the news that as a result of additional funding from The National Lottery we are able to offer extra support to our community throughout the Coronavirus crisis.

Creating Enterprise have received a grant top-up from The National Lottery Community Fund which will pay for two additional Job Search Coordinators for a period of six months. Sharon Jones, Creating Enterprise’s Business & Partnership Director, says, “As a snapshot of what is happening in our community, Cartrefi Conwy Housing Association’s call centre has reported that 58% of the calls that came in last week were as a direct result of tenants having lost their jobs. We know that this will be the case across the whole of Conwy County”. For this reason, the new roles have been created to offer extra support, guidance and mentoring to any individual wanting to find work.

Therefore, if you have been affected by redundancy or unemployment during the COVID-19 situation, or if you’ve been inspired to make some positive changes, please be assured that we are here to help. Keep an eye on our social media pages for regular updates on the support that’s available to you, and feel free to contact us at any point.

Over the next six months, The National Lottery Community Fund are prioritising grant applications for community activity related to COVID-19. To find out more visit www.tnlcommunityfund.org.uk/wales
