Birmingham Community Development Scheme acts as a channel for voluntary work experience, training and paid employment, as well as setting a trend without attaching the stigma usually attached to employing ex-offenders. We look beyond stereotypes – we work with each person as an individual and focus on their skills and assets. We provide extensive support and mentoring to maintain these changes, thus contributing to a positive society.
Because of the delicate nature, BCDS need to be selective throughout the sourcing, vetting, training, management and supervision of team members. A strict code of conduct and protocol is in place for all employees, all of who receive ongoing appraisals.
BCDS has countless success stories – our team has shown their skills and life experiences to be a real asset. With the right support, they can perform with the professionalism and integrity like anyone else in a working environment.
Birmingham Community Development Scheme: is community-based organization that focused on helping the long term unemployed and ex-offenders through employability workshops, job club, CVs, cover letters and mock interviews.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community. Your contribution today helps us make a difference.
