A social enterprise that offers work and training to disadvantaged people has launched its first Cornwall project.
Future Clean will be offering environmentally friendly car valeting at Moorfield Car Park in Truro, which will support 24 people through the Jobcentre Plus Flexible Support Fund.
Carolyn Webster from Jobcentre Plus said, “We are proud to be backing Future Clean, an initiative, which has developed a proven track record of inspiring jobseekers to achieve greater independence through work.”
Future Clean was launched in 2010 in one car park in Plymouth; it rapidly expanded to other car parks in the city and then onto Exeter. Since then the project has won a national award, has been nominated for a second, and is expanding across Britain. Is it supported by the European Social Fund and run by Pluss, a social enterprise that supports more than 5,000 people with disabilities and other disadvantages into employment every year.
Groups targeted by this project include: ex-servicemen, young people who are not in education, employment or training), and people with mental health issues, learning disabilities or physical disabilities.
