A five-year initiative to help match those unemployed, disabled or facing other health issues has been launched by Durham County Council.

Durham Employment Skills’ Working Health programme aims to help and support both businesses seeking new staff and those looking for employment.

It’s particularly aimed at those that are have been out of work for some time or are recovering from a long-term health condition and seeks to identify and remove barriers. This may include learning a new skill; providing access to courses for recognised qualifications; improving confidence, job-seeking skills and useful coaching on finding employment.
