Funded by the East Durham AAP the Community Job Clubs were open to support anyone that needed help and support in job search related activity and were totally free to use. The best part about them was that they were local, accessible and based in your community.
There were supported sessions where someone was on hand to help beneficiaries with a range of things from using a computer from scratch, job search, CV writing and other Job Seeking skills, to improving your interview skills and help with your maths, reading and writing skills, plus much more!
The Community Job Clubs also hosted a number of highly successful Job Fairs reaching 100's of people and giving them the opportunity to engage with potential employers, learn about volunteering opportunity and pick up some valuable employability tips. The Community Job Clubs have continued as part of our Big Lottery funded Stop Poverty in East Durham project.

What We Do
We help the communities of the former district of Easington which is made up 20 distinct areas, most of which are former Pit villages that continue to be hugely affected by deprivation and health inequality. East Durham Trust’s operates on a ‘hub and spoke’ approach through well-established partnerships with our communities. We work directly with community members and partners to facilitate prevention, intervention and crisis support services delivered in our communities, for our communities and by our communities.
We empower people to take ownership of their own needs and work to lift up those most in need in East Durham. We help build and maintain meaningful relationships within our community ensuring those on the margins are helped to be in reach of a spectrum vital services.
