Coastline assists local people taking steps to make their future more secure by offering work placements.
These eight week placements run twice a year and can help you learn new skills. They include a comprehensive package of training and give real work experience in a supportive environment.
So far, at least 5 out of the 10 people on each round of work placements have gone into work either during or straight after the programme. Many more have secured employment after the placement has ended.
In 2015/16, 44 people successfully re-entered the workplace, 27 went into full time work, 13 went into part-time work, 4 people started apprenticeships, 84 people undertook work related training and 6 people went on to become volunteers. All thanks to our inspiring futures programme!
What can I expect if I secure a work placement?

We work closely with local job centres so if you are currently receiving any means tested benefits these will not be affected by taking part in Coastline's work placement programme.
