Reaching Out Across Durham ROAD

ROAD is designed to help the residents of County Durham who are out of work and aged 25 and above to overcome barriers to employment. We help individuals find their potential and enable them to move into education, training or work. We do this by working closely with individuals to improve their confidence, develop their skills and promote knowledge, health and well being.

Wheels 2 Work County Durham

If you’re struggling to get to your job, can’t cope with the college commute or can’t afford a car, Wheels to Work can help. This moped-loan scheme aims to help people access employment, training or education that would otherwise be inaccessible due to poor public transport connections or out-of-hour work patterns.
