The Work.Live.Leicestershire (WiLL) programme will help people who are economically inactive and unemployed living in rural Leicestershire, providing access to holistic, tailored support that enables them to move into job search, training or employment.
Over 500 people will benefit from the programme, which runs for 18 months from January 2019-June 2020.
We WiLL support 271 economically inactive and 270 unemployed rural residents. This will include 270 women and 271 men, 110 people with disabilities, including mental health needs, 30 carers, and 69 people aged 51 and over.
WiLL is a partnership of 8 organisations; Vista (lead organisation) CASE, De Montfort University, Leicestershire County Council, Prince’s Trust, Rural Community Council, Voluntary Action Leicestershire, and Workers’ Educational Association.

CASE ENTERPRISE BUREAU
We offer a full start up and support service as part of the WiLL programme for eligible people living in Leicestershire. A service designed for those considering starting their own business, who want to understand better the pros and cons and whether it would be suited to them.
We will help you make a balanced decision through our Introduction to Self Employment Workshop
If it is the right decision we will offer you a programme of support, including further workshops, with the opportunity to meet and connect with other people also starting their own businesses.
We also offer 1-2-1 support and mentoring, both as you set up your business and through the first year of trading.
If this service is of interest to you but you are not eligible for the WiLL programme, you could still get help and advice from us about becoming self-employed or starting a business, co-operative or social enterprise. Contact us directly at CASE on 0116 222 5010 or at email@example.com
