This will involve providing encouragement and positive reinforcement about the programme and to support engagement with the range of appropriate services and activities available to each participant. Priorities will include providing 1-2-1 and Group support for online job searches, facilitating introductions to specialist support services and generally providing a high-level of customer service during attendance at the ‘delivery centre’.
