CAP Job Clubs

Unemployment plays a huge part in UK poverty, with over 1.86 million people out of work.1 As rejection letters pile up, many people are left feeling hopeless.

CAP Job Clubs help jobseekers gain the tools, skills and confidence to step back into employment. Our combined practical and emotional support is why the Department of Work and Pensions highly recommends our service.

What CAP provides

CAP enables your church to deliver an effective service to help people step into work, even after years of unemployment. We provide training and ongoing support for your job club to be successful. This includes materials to run our eight-week interactive Steps to Employment Course, covering topics such as identifying strengths, CV writing, and interview techniques. We’ve designed the course to be an easy and effective way for you to practically equip club members, in a supportive environment that boosts confidence and morale.

Through CAP Job Clubs, your church can create a community that demonstrates God’s love in a relevant way.
