Our Vision

Our Flagship Projects

Our Services


The West Of England Works project is an exciting partnership which aims to help unemployed people in the West of England find employment. Led by Weston College, the partnership includes a range of voluntary and community organisations based in Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, and Bath and North East Somerset. It will support at least 1537 young people and adults into gaining employment through a community-based support programme. The project is part of the Building Better Opportunities programme, and has received £6 million of funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.

West of England Works aims to support young people and adults who face multiple and complex barriers to securing sustainable employment and training across the West of England area.

We recognise that often no one organisation can suit all the needs and often complex requirements of one person, so through our partners we work together to meet the needs of people who are struggling to get into the job market or training. Together we provide a unique model of supporting people on the journey from social exclusion to participation in education, training and employment.

West of England Works is led by Weston College and is a collaboration of locally-based voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations working across the West of England with a history of working in partnership to support people in communities experiencing high levels of deprivation and who face often complex and multiple barriers to accessing work.
