Supports unemployed and economically inactive Coventry people to address barriers from participating in the labour market, through flexible support, tailored to individual need. 

Over 900 people will be supported, particularly workless residents with disabilities, people with mental health difficulties, women, people from ethnic minorities and people aged 50+.  

Support is delivered through a network of specialist delivery partners, with understanding of the unique and complex barriers which deter these groups from engaging in employment focused programmes. Innovative support methods will also be used, including training volunteers to become ConnectMe Champions.
