We help BAME & migrant people in Wales into work.

We help adults aged 25 or over, who are either long-term unemployed or economically inactive. Participants must be eligible to work in the UK.

We will meet you at a convenient location for you or if we can work with you via video calls on your smartphone or computer.

We’ll provide help for you with training, job searches, CV writing, interview skills, and job applications.

Achieving Change through Employment/Cyflawni Newidiadau drwy ddod o hyd I waith is a European Social Fund (ESF) and Welsh Government funded charity project run by Change Grow Live.

Our help is completely free and opens the door to employment and a rewarding career.

  1. After we’ve received your details from the referral form we’ll meet you at a convenient location and if you meet our eligibility criteria, enroll you into the ACE project.
  2. We’ll do an individual assessment to determine the best action plan for you. We want to make sure that we support you in the most useful way possible.  
  3. We’ll set up regular meetings and mentoring sessions. According to your needs, we can offer you help with job searches, CV writing, interview skills, job applications, volunteering, work placements, and training to gain a qualification or work-relevant certification.
