CAP Job Clubs
Unemployment plays a huge part in UK poverty, with upwards of one million people out of work. 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.
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.
What your church needs to do
In order to launch a CAP Job Club you will need the following:
- To recruit a CAP Job Club Manager who can work/volunteer for six to eight hours a week (hours may be spread across the week and spilt between volunteers).
- To recruit a couple of volunteers to assist the CAP Job Club Manager to run the group.
- Regular use of a room and computer, with access to the internet and a printer.
- To provide refreshments for members.
- A CAP speaker to give a talk at a Sunday service, which will include a regular giving ask.
We ask for a monthly partnership contribution of £60 paid via Direct Debit.
