Tilbury’s One Community set to re-open

MESSAGE from One Community: Many thanks for the vote of confidence in us as a local community centre. You have given us the mandate through our recent consultationsurvey to re-open.

We will now open 2 days a weeks on Mondays and Thursdays starting from Monday 7th September, and by appointment only, so please email, text or call, in the first instance to secure an appointment. This will gradually build back up to opening every day from November. Please note however, that we will still offer the Monday work club from 10.00am to 15.00pm as a coffee morning drop-in like we used to, but this will be restricted on a first come, first serve basis due to social distancing. We may need to make a follow-up appointment for you for this reason. 

We have again partnered with Skills Network Ltd to provide FREE-of-charge Level 2 courses listed below. Let us know if you are interested in doing any of them so we can send you the link to register. We will also continue to support people back to work through our Tilbury Opportunites (TOPs) and Headstart to Employment Projects that are being fully funded. We appreciate some will need face-to-face support with CV writing, job applications, IT support to get through, so we are now able to meet at the Shop by prior arrangement. Our VIPs and peer support mentors will be available to support you through this process once an appointment has been secured.
