Welfare Reform – Low Income Families Project – Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council

LSB ESF project - Employment

Demand collected from partners during an exercise carried out in April 2013 identified that there was a significant informal referral system from the Job Centre to the Library in Port Talbot for supporting clients to complete CVs, on line application forms and job searches as well as assistance with basic IT skills. This resulted in an unsustainable level of demand and a lack of resources to assist clients. The numbers of job seekers asking for assistance in the library increased when Universal Jobmatch (UJ) started as people were then obliged to do a certain number of hours job seeking each week or could risk the non payment of benefits.
