Joanna Madsen, Senior Project Administrator for MyJobCoach, said: “At a time when funds for community groups and charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, we’re incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in West Hull and surrounding East Yorkshire Villages.

“We’re raising funds to enable us to run the Community Job & IT Club to train and support unemployed residents who are over the age of 50 back into work and improve their connectivity to the community by increasing their IT skills.

“MyJobCoach runs clubs that help residents within our Hull and East Yorkshire community to get back into work, new employment or training. These clubs are currently delivered online but will be face-to-face groups again once Covid-19 restrictions allow. This club will provide members with a reason to get up in the morning, a sense of self-worth and more confidence. Members would increase their local social and support networks, reducing isolation. Members would also support each other, spend with local businesses and volunteer. This will help build a stronger community.

“To help us raise vital funds, we’ll be relying on Co-op Members. When a member buys selected branded products and services, the Co-op will give a helping hand to local causes like ours.”

Co-op members can select us as their local cause by visiting https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/54839.
