Chard, working

Worklife job club has now closed due to a fall in demand for the services offered.

Originally it ran weekly, and then more recently once a month at Forefront Centre. More than 200 people were helped by Worklife since the project began. We know of at least 40 people who found jobs, and we are pleased that a number of clients continued to walk with Forefront by attending our Sunday service.  

However, now the Forefront staff will be happy to chat to job-seekers who call in at any time, and will direct people to other services which can support them, including:

  • Chard Library - gives free computer use to library members at the Lace Mill
  • Abri - run a job club for their tenants every Thursday at the Rugby Club
  • Citizens Advice South Somerset - give help and advice on a wide range of work and benefit issues, from their base at the Forefront Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday (by appointment only - 0808 278 7842)
  • One Step Recruitment agency - based at 32 Fore Street (01460 68884)
  • Online - there are many job sites available such as Indeed (
