Work Avenue’s services help people to earn a living to support themselves and their families, and the need for our services has never been greater.
The year has brought about unprecedented changes that have resulted in more people reaching out to us than ever.
We provide information, advice, guidance, courses and one-to-one support, help thousands of people each year find jobs, change careers and start thriving businesses. And virtually all of our services are provided free of charge.
For those needing help into work or looking to change jobs, our advisers are there to support them every step of the way, helping them build a CV, search for jobs, network and practise their interview skills.
For those looking to start or grow a business, our advisers help them develop ideas, assess the commercial viability of their venture and develop a business plan.
And our work doesn’t stop once our clients have found theirs. Our advisers continue to check in, offer support, help them work on future plans and suggest courses that can help supplement what they are already doing.
Our ultimate goal is to equip people with the essential lifelong skills and knowledge to support themselves and their families, both now and in the future
The demand for Work Avenue’s services has always been great but now it is needed more than ever. The current rate of unemployment in the UK is 4.8% and is unfortunately still rising. Your contribution, no matter the size, will help Work Avenue to continue helping people earn a living with dignity.
Our need for your support
Due to the pandemic, Work Avenue has supported over 2,000 clients across the UK in 2020
It costs on average £375 to help each of our clients into work and we need your help more than ever to continue to do this
Work Avenue’s income has dropped significantly due to cancelled fundraising events
Our Big Ask
On the 17-18 January let us all come together as a community to raise £750,000 for Work Avenue.
For 36 hours, our generous matchers have agreed to double every donation that is made, so this means that every donation you make will be doubled. So £10 will become £20, £500 will become £1000 and so on!
Thank you so much for your support
