Visit to Stockport Jobcentre

It was great to visit Stockport Jobcentre to meet such a positive team. Staff told me that they are reaching vulnerable people who they wouldn’t have reached in the past, meaning that long-term issues relating to poverty can begin to be addressed. In addition to this, the Jobcentre is able to offer a wider service, with work coaches being able to help people with housing and other issues by working with Stockport Homes and the Council. Making sure that people are confident enough to seek help and advice is a massive step towards tackling poverty.
