CAR Project Community Against Recession
ITV Region: Central West / Year: 2009
Old Post Centre
The CAR project provides activities for the community inspiring them to work, train and volunteer. The project provides financial and counselling services and opportunities for the community to cope better with the effects of the recession. It offers IT sessions to support unemployed people, developing their skills and improving their employment prospects. Isolated older people can attend a monthly ‘Supper Club’, and transport will be provided. Individuals and families with low incomes, or those who face financial difficulties, will have the opportunity to attend money/debt management sessions and access advice services. The project will be run from the Old Post Centre.
