The Work Live Leicestershire (WiLL) project is committed to going the extra mile to meet the needs of rural communities.
Residents living in rural areas can face difficulties accessing the opportunities that lead to employment, training and education.
Work Live Leicestershire was formed to overcome these barriers and help people in the county solve these problems, through a specialist and personalised support network.
We are funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund and proudly sit within the Building Better Opportunities programme.
Their ethos in tackling the root causes of unemployment, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth is a vision shared by the WiLL project.
We operate alongside our partner organisations for the same goal – that the personal development of our participants should not be stunted, no matter what their aspirations are.
This approach has served us well since we launched at the start of 2019, with Work Live Leicestershire continuing until, at least, 2023.
We have already guided hundreds of participants towards a brighter future within their local environment, with many of those the furthest away from the labour market.
We are Work Live Leicestershire – Overcoming barriers to training, employment and well-being across rural Leicestershire through collaboration. For further details about the project,
