Visit from our MP

Posted by communityprospects on April 22, 2013


We were delighted on Friday to welcome our local MP, the honourable Paul Burstow who visited our WISE ( women in sustainable enterprise )project . He was rightly unhappy about the lack of interest shown by Jobcentre plus concerning local projects helping people ( especially women from minority backgrounds) to learn new skills and improve their prospects of actually coming off benefits!! Despite the odds, 13 women will be completing their Childcare Level 1 course on Friday and we are so proud of them.
