Employment support

We provide support to those who have found themselves either at risk of unemployment or unemployed.  

You may even just be looking to learn new skills or considering a career change. 

We are here to help.

As part of Chorley Together, we work in partnership with a whole host of organisations who are dedicated to supporting you. 

Find employment support now


There is an employment support directory that shows what support is available throughout Chorley.

Whether you need assistance with writing a professional CV and covering letter or guidance on appropriate courses, you can choose the right organisation for you and contact them independently. 

As well as this, the Lancashire Skills and Employment Hub's Escalate database is an online tool which can also help you get started on your journey to work.  Answer a few simple questions and it will search through a database of over 100 projects to find the support that is both local to you and that meets your needs.


Get tailored 1:1 advice

We offer comprehensive support and referrals for a variety of services, including:

  1. Confidence building and skill enhancement.
  2. Crafting CVs and writing cover letters.
  3. Interview preparation and skills.
  4. Assisting with job searches.
  5. Completing job application forms.
  6. Identifying available courses and training opportunities in your local area.

To access these services, please reach out to us at 01257 515151 or email us at, and let us know your specific needs.

Afterwards, we can either tailor personalised support packages to help you progress in your journey or direct you to external employment support services on your behalf.

We are committed to assisting you at every stage of your journey. If you are unable to engage in phone calls, we can make alternative arrangements to accommodate your needs. Moreover, if you are facing other challenges, we can guide you towards resources that offer crisis support, such as food banks, mental health services, and debt advice.

Alternatively, our Link Worker team can collaborate with you to address your concerns and guide you towards your next steps. To self refer please click here.



Volunteering is a very good step into the world of work and can have several benefits including:

  • increasing self-confidence
  • gaining vital work-place experience
  • providing a sense of purpose and routine
  • a chance to meet with like minded people.

We can help you access volunteering opportunities with local community groups or with other local charities and organisations.
