The specialist partnership that MyCoventry has developed will bridge service gaps, provide mentoring, coaching and holistic interventions to support client progression and integration.
The city-wide partnership between Coventry City Council, the Job Shop, St Francis Employability, ACH, Coventry University and Positive Youth Foundation is part-funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF).
