Our Employment Officer takes the time to work with each individual, to identify their specific needs and agree how we can support them to achieve their goals. Some are ready to work and only require a little guidance.

“People tell me that they like coming here because they get the help they need on a one to one basis and are not just left to get on with it.” Janice Gray – NESS Employment Officer
