BTCV - Conservation Vounteers

The Family Employment Initiative is a European funded £3 million programme that matches local families to community environmental projects giving them the chance to gain vital confidence and motivational skills in preparation for employment.  The project is targeted at the hardest to reach individuals, the scheme acts as a precursor to formal training initiatives allowing 3,500 people to take the first steps to finding a job.

The purpose of this project is to engage with participants in the Heads of the Valleys and Bridgend area, provide volunteer job opportunities, confidence building, motivation and, when ready, training - with the opportunity gain recognised Agored Cymru qualifications in environmental and employability skills, ultimately  leading to sustained employment. There are also considerable health benefits as volunteers are encouraged to take exercise, get fit and enjoy the fresh air.
