Wealden Works is a rural employability programme

We give an opportunity for 40 young people aged 16-24 in the Wealden area each year, who do not benefit from contacts with the business world and other support networks, to take an important step on their personal journey into employment and contributing citizenship.

Bridging the gap between education and work.

Wealden Works is open and here to help and support young people.

We are a unique youth employment programme that works closely with local businesses and key organisations within the Wealden community.

Our main aim is to provide professional career advice and personal guidance to create positive pathways for young people.


Participants enjoy group team building events in a fun friendly environment. Wealden Works help them with our continued support to unlock their potential.

Self Confidence

The scheme develops personal and social skills, motivation and self-confidence so they can move forward with their lives into work, training or further education.


The group also contributes to projects which add value to the environment and community.
