A Bridge To Work

Partnering to Connect People and Jobs

Are you looking for work? We are very happy to announce that in July 2018 we are launching a new Employment program A Bridge to Work at the Bridge Housing office. Our Employment Services partner CoAct has provided an experienced Employment Support Co-ordinator to work with tenants and household members on a one to one basis. Read the flyer.

A Bridge to Work is open to all Bridge Housing residents who are looking for work, or looking to improve their work circumstances, for example, from casual to permanent. The CoAct Employment Support Co-ordinator works with residents to help them establish individual work goals; and will provide one on one support, coaching and mentoring to help residents find the right job sooner.

Orbit

Calling all Bridge kids: we need your help to launch into Orbit! 

We want to give younger people, aged 5 – 12 years, the chance to talk to us about what’s important to them, what they aspire to, and changes they’d like to see in their homes and their neighbourhoods.

Orbit is held during the April school holidays. This year, Orbit was held at the Redfern Community Centre in partnership with Weave Youth and Community Services and the Settlement.
