Wirral Change is a Black and Racial Minorities Outreach Service offering information, advice and guidance on jobs, education, training, self-employment, health and wellbeing, as well as signposting to other services for racial minority people on the Wirral.
Working in partnership with Wirral Borough Council, NHS Wirral and others, Wirral Change has demonstrated that the problem of worklessness in the black community can be effectively addressed and that local delivery mechanisms for this are feasible.
Now we offer support to the community on a whole range of issues, employment-related and otherwise, and are constantly seeking new ways to make life better for those we serve.
