BCHG Click Start

Black Country Housing Group is delivering the Black Country Click Start project, a free service for people aged 18 - 64 who are unemployed or ‘economically inactive’ e.g. not in paid employment, self-employment and are not available for or not seeking work. The aim is to help people to develop their personal financial and digital skills to enable them to make the most of the internet, manage their money and find training, volunteering or employment opportunities online.
Funded by the European Social Fund and the Big Lottery Fund, the project specifically targets people not in work who will be affected by a change in circumstances such as a transfer to Universal Credit and other aspects of the welfare reform, those in rent arrears and those affected by debt.
Delivered individually or in a small group, support can be given with any of the following:
- Filling out online forms
