Do you or anyone you know need help with finding employment? Perhaps you’re in a job that doesn’t offer enough hours, or you dream of doing something different but certain barriers are holding you back? You might be unemployed or facing redundancy. Whatever your situation we can help find what works for you!

We provide 1-to-1 support, guidance and training to adults aged 25 and over, and also to young people aged 16 - 24, who are not in education, employment, or training. If your circumstances do not fit this criteria, don't worry, we can help point you in the direction of someone who can assist you.

We can help you with:

  • Writing CV’s
  • Interview skills
  • Courses (free of charge)
  • Qualifications
  • Work placements
  • Links with employers
  • Confidence building
  • Signposting
  • Volunteering (doesn’t affect benefits)

The team of Employment Mentors are based at:

Douglas Road,
Colwyn Bay,
LL29 7PE
We are open Monday - Thursday between 9am - 5pm, Friday 9am - 4:30pm
We can be contacted on 01492 575578 or 07711 567191


Communities for Work is a voluntary programme to help those adults furthest away from employment. The programme is funded by the Welsh European Funding Office and provides a £41.2m investment in employment support in the 52 Communities First Clusters across Wales– this includes £24.8m of European Union funds. The programme is co-sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions and runs until 2020.

Communities for Work Plus is funding provided by the Welsh Government to support the continued delivery of Communities for Work and take forward the learning from the Lift Programme.
