From November 3 Jobcentre Plus extends an outreach scheme for residents aged over 16 to the towns. It aims to give people the chance to discuss work and training opportunities, get advice about application forms, clarify rules on Jobseekers’ Allowance and find details about initiatives by not going too far away from their homes. From November 3, Jobcentre Plus will run surgeries as follows: Mondays: Wealden District Council offices, Hailsham from 9.30am-4.30pm. Last Thursday of the month: Uckfield Volunteer Centre from 1pm-4pm. First Friday of the month: Heathfield Library from 10.30am-1pm. Last Friday of the month: Crowborough Library from 9.30am-1pm. Cllr Roy Galley said: “The trial proved popular and it’s important more jobseekers can get advice without the cost of travel.”
