A service providing free one-to-one support to unemployed jobseekers in Stevenage has so far helped over 250 people into work.
Work Routes, delivered by Reed in Partnership, provides free support and training to help people overcome their barriers into employment.
Aldo Collu, senior operations manager for Reed in Partnership's Stevenage office, said: "Our participants often have complex barriers to finding work, including long-term unemployment, carer responsibilities, health issues and a lack of IT skills, so we are delighted we have helped so many change their lives for the better."
Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland visited Work Routes, which is commissoned by the Department for Work and Pensions, and said: "The jobseekers are doing a fantastic job, increasing confidence and self-esteem, and learning the skills they need to start working.
"I am delighted such a positive programme exists."
