Employment and Accommodation Project

If you receive housing advice from Norwich City Council you are now likely to receive a Personalised Housing Plan. The plan will contain details of what the council will do to help you, and steps that you need to take.

Having stable employment will help you find and keep a home. If you are unemployed, or having difficulties keeping your job, we want to help you.

If your Personalised Housing Plan states that you should come to The Feed, first you need to contact us to make an appointment. You can arrange this appointment by emailing, ringing us or popping in to our café at 78-80 Prince of Wales Road (open 8am-3pm).

Your appointment will last for approximately 45 minutes and during it we will talk to you about your employment situation and try to find what support is available to you either from us or from other organisations. This could include coaching, training, debt advice, support with drug and alcohol addition, support for ex-offenders, help with job searching or getting you in to volunteering.

Currently this is a trial and only available to people under 25, but we hope to make this service available to more people soon.


Norfolk Community College – Support for Ex-Offenders

If you are 25 and over, have been unemployed for over a year and have a previous conviction we can help you get in to work.

Please contact us for an initial meeting with our Opportunities Officer. We will discuss what kind of work you would like to do and look at opportunities that may be available to you and what support or training you may need. If we can help you further we may offer you up to ten one to one coaching sessions.

You may be referred to us for this service by the Job Centre or from other parts of Norfolk Community College. However, please contact us directly if you would like more information.

This service will begin December 2018, for more details contact us at and we will contact you when we are ready for you.

This service is part of Norfolk Community College, a Building Better Opportunities Project funded by the Big Lottery and European Social Fund. For more information about Norfolk Community College check out the website at
