Within the first few weeks of our 3SC Cymru team being on board - we are delighted to announce that we have won a new contract in the Bridgend area.
Following last month’s announcement of 3SC’s partnership with one commercial Tier 1 bidder we can confirm that we have secured agreement with at least one other, to develop VCSE sector supply chains in more contract package areas.
Bridgend County Borough Council has awarded the contract to deliver the Younger and Older People Accessing Employment Service (YOPAES) to 3SC in partnership with Creation, Gofal, PRIME Cymru, and Connecting Communities Wales (CCW). Through these partners we will be able to provide personalised support to unemployed Bridgend residents to enable them to remove barriers to work and access employment, from December.
For a young person entering the world of work can be a daunting and anxious time, so 3SC have written a bespoke Employee Handbook; A Helping Hand as You Start Work designed to equip them with the information, support, tips and advice to prepare for working life and conduct themselves appropriately in the workplace.
3SC understands that being able to connect with the customer is crucial to the success of our Jobs Growth Wales delivery. And we want our customers to be able to connect with us through a multitude of different platforms. We therefore have programme profiles on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Flicker.
3SC is working with the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD), the National Autistic Society (NAS) and Dyslexia Action on an exciting project to improve support for offenders with Learning Disabilities and Difficulties (LDD).
