CHAC offers admin and adviser training along with work experience placements for residents going through difficult life transitions. The program aims to remove barriers to training and employment for these individuals and move them closer to the labour market. Key challenges addressed include homelessness, mental health issues, abuse, substance misuse, offending, and poverty, coupled with secondary disadvantages like debt, learning disabilities and a lack of employability skills.

Join our team of volunteers! We are always keen to speak to people who would like to help deliver our advice service as well as our other supporting services. Together we helped over 12,000 people last year face to face, over the phone, and by email in the Tees Valley.
