Village Works

Five hands palm down in a row on a table

This project works at local level with the most economically excluded and unemployed people in rural coastal areas to help them into personal and skills development and employment programmes.  It uses methods that are sustainable and can be replicated in other locations.

Village Works focuses particularly on the Bude and Camelford areas, Helston and the Lizard Peninsula, including the wider areas of Goldsithney, Leedstown, Carnkie, Gweek and the Helford River.

The project is driven by Inclusion Cornwall which includes Jobcentre Plus, local Councils, disAbility Cornwall, Kernow Credit Unions, Lizard Pathway and many more.
