Situated in the heart of Digbeth, iSE (the Initiative for Social Entrepreneurs) has been awarded an ESF grant by Birmingham and Black Country Community Foundation to support unemployed residents into work through a mixture of soft skill development, mentoring and work experience.
The project will develop the skills of unemployed people living in Digbeth and parts of Highgate by linking them up with work experience placements within local social enterprises, community groups, charities, small businesses and not-for profit organisations operating in the area.
The project is designed to help remove barriers to employment and assist local people to move closer to the labour market. It will also encourage residents to become more involved in their community.
