After setting up running our Thursday morning breakfast group ‘TATA’ for 18 worth’s where we help homeless and people in need by providing food supplied by Fareshare, used clean clothing and shoes and medical support provided by East Norfolk Medical Practice, plus many volunteer helpers, we felt that we wanted to offer people in difficult situations the opportunity to be inspired into taking steps to secure employment and volunteering opportunities with a positive outcome and change to circumstances.

We have been running employment and business start up initiative since 2017 and created a Saturday Morning ‘Job Club’ where we engage with employers who come to talk to job seekers about what they look for when recruiting, the types of positions available and any tips. Plus, they actually meet and talk to people face to face, which is seen as a big hinderance for many jobseekers who can become disillusioned with continual rejection of CV applications.

Start Up Saturdays is a 30-45 minute session supported by Great Yarmouth Borough Council EU Social Funding, Slater Menswear, Fareshare and many businesses.
