Description: 
Seeking a job or thinking about changing your career. How can volunteering benefit you? Free workshops for people seeking work in Eastbourne and the area. Volunteering can make a real difference, not just to those you will be helping or getting involved with. It can make a real change to your life and positively impact your skills, experience and therefore job prospects. Local charities - 3VA, People Matter and Creative Force have joined forces to deliver hands on workshops, with new dates announced for January, February and March 2019. 3VA is the charity that supports and develops the voluntary and community sector in Eastbourne, Lewes and Wealden, whilst People Matter provides information, advice and guidance to jobseekers, whether or not they are currently working. Creative Force develops programmes of creative workshops in local communities to get people thinking ‘outside the box’. We have piloted the workshops and the feedback was so positive that we secured a small amount of funding to deliver them again in 2019. These workshops are designed to help people find out more about how the experience of volunteering can create opportunities, in work by adding to their CVs and job prospects and also in their lives generally through learning different skills, using untapped talents and meeting new people. It also offers advice on how to find the right volunteering opportunity for individuals. “It's opened my eyes on volunteering!” “I felt people got a lot from it & will be keen to reap the benefits of volunteering” “Really helpful workshops” The sessions are funded and you can attend them for FREE, but spaces are limited and must be booked by contacting People Matter on 01323 431289.
