Trafford Connexions

Connexions is the young persons service which provides advice, information, guidance, support and personal development for all 13 to 19 year olds in Trafford (up to 25 years old for disabled young people).

You can get help with personal issues, accessing work / training, advice and guidance, job vacancies, CV writing and internet access.

We provide one to one support from a professionally qualified Careers Adviser.  We support you to recognise skills, achievements and options. We refer and signpost to appropriate organisations if more support is required around particular issues e.g. Young parent, homelessness, mental health, alcohol and drug issues, finance and benefits.

We provide support on an individual basis with making applications, registering with appropriate websites, jobsearching, making a CV, encouragement and motivational support. We can advise on how to start apprenticeships.

We can support and advise young people on an individual basis to address issues that may prevent them from sustaining a job such as finances / benefits or practical issues, such as transport. We can refer to other agencies such as drug / alcohol teams, mental health services etc. if support is required to sustain work. We can signpost to other agencies with regard to other barriers to keeping a job including: Housing, Benefits, Childcare, Disability & knowing your rights.
