The People Hub is an innovative combination of technology and personal support to provide practical support and information to enable people who are currently unemployed or inactive resolve the key issues that may be preventing them from moving on in life.
They run an information line, where our Connectors are on hand to provide free and confidential information, advice, guidance, and they can also support individuals looking to get back into work, employment and training. The People Hub is part funded by the European Social Fund and has four delivery partners: Konnect Communities, Hi9, SmartMatching, and the Council of the Isles of Scilly.

Our Delivery Partners
Konnect’s People Hub project is about enabling you to achieve your goals. We believe that everyone has an important role to play in their communities -whatever their background. Our experienced mentors will listen to what’s going on in your life, understand what you want to change and support you in overcoming any obstacles in your way.
Alongside our mentoring you can also access our effective Life Choices course. Based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques, Life Choices supports individuals to review their lives and to challenge negative thinking patterns which may be preventing them from moving on. The courses helps individuals clear some of all of those blocks, leaving sufficient 'head space' to consider a future of work or learning.
SmartMatching will be providing training for participants to build skills and confidence in accessing a wide range of remote work, as well as develop and provide a Smart Matching portal for The People Hub participants.
Hi9 are delivering innovative Audio Digital Assistants and ChatBots to support people out of work with accessing the information regarding provision and support.
The Council of the Isles of Scilly will be delivering The People Hub project on Isles of Scilly to support people out of work into employment, education and training.

'At the end of last year, I was made redundant and was at a real loss. I was referred to The People Hub and spoke to Kim who kindly referred me to another lady Maggie at the National Careers Service with a view to reviewing my CV. I made the call and updated my CV. My revised CV got lots more interest and I ended up here - a newly recruited Work Coach for the DWP. So a big thank you to Kim for that initial advice.'
'It's great to hear that the focus is on the need of the customer, and doing what is right for them.'
