Due to the COVID-19 health crisis we have approval from DWP to temporarily widen our eligibility criteria.
In addition to our normal eligibility (found here www.futurebright.org.uk) we can also work with the residents affected by a change in circumstances caused by the COVID 19 outbreak meaning they are currently receiving, or likely to start receiving, Universal Credit
We can help:
Those who have been made redundant or who have been laid off as a result of the coronavirus crisis, or who are currently at risk of redundancy.
Those whose hours have been significantly reduced due to the coronavirus crisis, and therefore have a reduced income.
Those who are working as self-employed, whose incomes or ability to earn have been severely impacted by coronavirus.
We can also help:
Furloughed employees, if their reduced income means they are eligible for Universal Credit.
Participants must still be:
Aged 19 and over
Living in Bath & North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire or Bristol
For these residents we can offer:
Over the phone/ Skype support for up to 3 months
Support to help participants begin looking for new or additional employment.
Access to short-term training to improve skills and enable participants to move quickly to secure work opportunities of either a temporary or permanent nature
Referrals can be made in the normal ways
