BBO Shropshire

Welcome to Building Better Opportunities

Building Better Opportunities Shropshire was launched by Landau in January 2017 to tackle unemployment and economic inactivity in over 19’s across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, a problem that affects nearly 13,000* people in the area.

 

Life presents many challenges and through our extensive experience of helping people with complex needs, we understand the many barriers that prevent people from engaging in meaningful employment.

In particular, the Building Better Opportunities Shropshire programme is committed to supporting people who may be over 50, homeless, have a disability, or mental health barrier, they may be restricted by their caring responsibilities or are raising a child on their own, whatever the circumstances, we can help you.

Landau can support you through a diverse range of accredited and non-accredited training courses, one to one job coaching, work experience placements and CV/Application form writing to inspire people back to work. Leading a partnership of 20 organizations Landau, through the BBO Shropshire partner network, can also help you start your own business, learn new skills like woodwork, horticulture, mechanics, get a unique opportunity to shadow seasoned health and social care professionals, try new industries through volunteering, learn about e-commerce, uprate your digital skills, help with anxiety and stress through yoga and mindfulness and teach you how to make a banquet on a budget with cooking courses and much more to get you ready for the world of work.

Building Better Opportunities Shropshire is funded European Social Fund and The National Lottery, through the Big Lottery Fund.

*5,600 are reported to be unemployed, 7,400 are reported to be economically inactive and want to work. Source: Nomis Official Labour Market Statistics Oct 2016-Sept 2017.

Testimonial – Natasha (Supported Employment (Work Choice) Participant)

“My time at Landau has really helped me, I was really scared of the thought of getting back into work. When I started Landau I was really nervous and I didn’t want to go, but I am happy I did because now, I have a job in a care home. They helped me gain confidence for my interview, everyone at Landau is really nice, they helped and supported me. I feel more confident and happy to start my job and it’s nice to know that Landau will be still supporting me whilst at work. Everyone made me comfortable and they all helped when I got nervous. Thank you so much for your help.”
