Nottingham City Council and partners across the D2N2 region (Derby and Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire) have announced Way2Work; a new range of support activities for unemployed residents age 16+.
Way2Work is especially for people who are facing personal and economic barriers to finding a job such as lack of basic maths and language skills, single adult families, people from BAME communities, over 50s, and people with disabilities or health conditions which have a long-term and significant impact on their daily lives.
Way2Work will be delivered by twelve partner organisations across the D2N2 region:

This will include advice about self-employment, work experience opportunities and apprenticeships as well as basic skills, digital skills and functional English to support eligible non-English speakers.
Way2Work also offers life-skills support including financial advice and financial support for travel and childcare, route and travel planning plus financial support for work-travel to help individuals sustain their job or training placement once it starts.
