Many people through no fault of their own can find themselves out of the employment market and unable to re-enter due to a lack of skills, a lack of local employment opportunities or are stuck in a low-paid job with little opportunity to progress. Many community organisations support individuals by providing training and skills opportunities to help get them into worthwhile well paid jobs which provides a valued service to their local community.
