Building Better Opportunities is a three-year project funded jointly by The Big Lottery Fund and The European Social Fund, it is aimed at supporting the most disadvantaged people in the Black Country from social exclusion and poverty.
At the Refugee and Migrant Centre, we can offer eligible participants a tailored support package helping people move towards achieving their personal goals in life, be that through employment, gaining the skills and confidence to engage in the wider community by improving their spoken English, or gaining the ability to access online services for their selves.
Building Better Opportunities has been designed to target specific participant groups, at RMC we can offer support via the following programmes:

Targeted Community Approach
Community Matters is one of four projects offering targets support to people within the Black Country. The programme will help those in Walsall, Wolverhampton, Dudley and Sandwell move into employment by developing their skills and confidence. Target areas in all four boroughs have been identified, and some of the project’s activities will be delivered across the Black Country while others will take a more localised approach, focusing on a specific borough, town or estate. Activities will include basic skills training and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), accredited training, weekly jobs clubs, employment/self-employment information sessions, targeted employability programmes and literacy, numeracy and financial skills workshops.
If you are interested in accessing the support of either of these programmes please contact us on 01902 311554 or visits is on 2nd Floor Roma Parva, 9 Waterloo Road, Wolverhampton, West Midlands. WV1 4NB.
