Birkenhead First to Help Job Initiative with Reachout

ReachOut project, that helps local people into work, is launching a community “Job Coach”  - a vehicle named Penny - to help and support local people into work.
The initiative was launched on Wednesday 17th May at a special event in the grounds of Royal Standard House in Rock Ferry by Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Ann McLachlan.and Leader of the Council Phil Davies joining us to cut the ribbon. 
After 11 years of service, the ReachOut Partnership (which consists of Involve Northwest, Wirral Change and Remploy) have successfully continued to support Wirral residents into sustainable employment.
Many of advisors have stayed with the project since it began and work very hard in going the extra mile in breaking down the many barriers that local people face whilst unemployed.
Alongside the 24 work clubs offered every week across Wirral, Penny the Job Coach will enable local residents to access support in gaining a job right on their doorstep.
Penny will be traveling around the Wirral communities to offer free, confidential and friendly advice. The initiative will be prominent throughout Wirral and will also be seen in the Birkenhead First (Business Improvement District) area and will be supported by the Birkenhead Town Hosts.
The ReachOut project has proven to become a household name for many families across Wirral seeking help into work, last month we supported 86 individuals in gaining employment.
The current ReachOut Project is funded by European Social Fund and Wirral Council.
