Find your Potential
ROAD is a free employment support service that helps to improve skills, give access to training opportunities, build confidence, and offer valuable work experience – this will provide the skills required to enable us to work towards helping people to get a job that suits them.
Our support is uniquely tailored to the individual’s goals, interests and needs. We work closely with Participants every step of the way on their journey into volunteering, training and employment.
I receive benefits. Will they be affected?
The support provided by ROAD should not affect your benefits. However, if and when your circumstances change, you will need to contact your local benefit office.
