Redundancy Support

You are not alone at this difficult time – we can offer help with searching for jobs, job applications, CV writing and interview skills remotely. Starting Point can also help you apply for funding to help you retrain and ensure your qualifications are up to date so you can get back into the workplace as quickly as possible.

Funding for training can be applied for 13 weeks prior/post redundancy date, and training must be related to your previous job role (it can also be used to venture into self-employment if you have a business plan). This funding can be used towards training, a course, qualification or licence; the course must be short (less than 2 weeks measured on a full-time basis) and face-to-face.

For more information on applying for redundancy support funding,  call us on 01744 698800 or email

Free training courses

We have a range of free short training courses available to anyone living in the Liverpool City Region who is 19+. These courses can add valuable skills to your CV and will help give you the confidence you need to get into work.

Each course is designed with employers, and the skills gained link directly to those needed for job roles in the local area.

Routeway to Employment programmes

Throughout the year, St Helens Chamber run a range of routeway programmes designed to quickly equip you with the skills you need to enter the workplace.

We work closely with local employers to secure exclusive vacancies for people who have completed the routeway programme. Each routeway is different, but all include a guaranteed interview for one of the live roles on offer with the employer on completion of the training.
