Unite Community are keen to forge better links with TUC Unemployed Workers Centres.
Unemployed Workers Centres assist unemployed and disabled people to claim the benefits they need to survive. They also run training courses and other services to help their clients into jobs and out of poverty.
All across the country, the task of representing the trade union movement on local and national government initiatives such as the New Deal, Employment Zones and European Social Fund projects is fulfilled by Unemployed Workers’ Centres. Some centres are going further, leading the way in developing positive labour market programmes.
Unemployed Workers Centres help some of the poorest people in Britain to claim benefits and find jobs . They are developing new programmes to help socially excluded people back into the mainstream, and campaigning for reforms to the benefit system that will help rather than hinder those who need to claim benefits.
