East Durham Trust provides free and friendly digital employability short sessions on your doorstep across East Durham, they are available to anyone on benefits looking for work and with no upper age restrictions.

We expect physical attendance at community venues and socially distanced face to face sessions to return once lockdown restrictions eases and would like as many local residents to take part in the Digital Job Club project to increase their chances of getting employment, perform their job searches correctly and keep their jobcentre advisors happy as well as update their digital skills.
We accept any East Durham resident on benefits without any age restrictions and our aim is to help them help themselves to become better digital citizens and increase their employability prospects.
You can update and improve your digital skills and enhance your employability prospects and help you get the job you want. We understand that it can be daunting to return to the job market after time away but we will do our best to help you help yourself.
The idea is to work closely with you to help you become job-ready and maximise your potential for paid work. We will help you update your CV and send job applications online easily. Search for more vacancies and become a better job seeker and it all counts towards your job search requirements.
Courses will be delivered locally and will include group type workshops with allocated times as well as sessions for 1:1 individual advice.

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 following the closure of the Pits. We run a wide range of projects to help the community fight disadvantage including food parcels, telephone befriending for the socially isolated, helping people in the downward spiral of debt, supporting people to get the benefits they deserve, providing holiday activities with food, getting the disengaged engaged with the arts and more.
