Todmorden Fencing Programme Pennine Housing 2000
Published by Jason Kayley for Together Housing Group in Housing
Pennine Housing 2000 are set to create new work opportunities thanks to a new £300,000 fencing project in Todmorden.
The 12-month project, to install new fencing made from 100% recycled materials on the Ashenhurst Estate, will create 35 work placements.
Pennine, in partnership with Todmorden Job Centre Plus, is creating placement positions so that the long-term unemployed can gain the skills, knowledge and experience needed to help them into sustained employment.
Pennine are providing intensive employment support by helping placements with completing CVs, applying for jobs, mentoring support and interview preparation support through their Employment Outreach Worker
The fencing will reduce costs as it does not need any maintenance and will improve the look of the estate dramatically.
Jayne Spencer, Pennine Housing 2000’s Employment and Community Partnerships Manager, said: “This programme shows how working in partnership with other organisations can make a big difference within our local communities.
“The people on site have taken to this with gusto, with our support we hope they will be on the right path to sustained employment in the future.”
