Bude Works is a project that brings together jobseekers, employers, budding entrepreneurs and a range of support services to help more people in the area to get into work, progress in work or start a new business. We engage with a broad range of people and businesses to overcome recruitment challenges and barriers to work in Bude, North Devon and many outlying rural communities. We work hard to understand factors such as transport, welfare reform, digital inclusion, health and wellbeing in our communities and what challenges and opportunities these bring for jobseekers and business. There are various initiatives within Cornwall and Devon to support Jobseekers and local employers – including training and events. Bude Works was established through Jobcentre Plus, funded by the DWP Flexible Support Fund and was supported by Inclusion Cornwall/Cornwall Works Hub.
From Sep 2015, the Budeworks project is supported by BudeBEAM, Bude Coastal Communities Team only.
