Personal Stories

Stories & experiences of Workfare

  1. This firm has been on the workfare gravy train for a number of years and changes it's name more times I've had hot dinners. There are numerous recycling companies based at that address. It used to be Think3 and a google of that name brings up some funny stories - like the one where they were kicked out of their Dewsbury factory by bailiffs for not paying the rent
  2. i was doing Mandatory Work Activity in clowne but they let me go so Acorn Training found me a placement with Chesterfield FC
