DWP Dereham

The past eighteen months has been unprecedentedly hard for many, and with Furlough now finishing it is more important than ever to have our job centres helping those that need it most.

That’s why I really appreciated the opportunity to catch up with the wonderful Julia Nix (East Anglia District Manager for the DWP) this past Friday – and hear about the great opportunities for many jobseekers in our region.

It was great to visit Kat and her team in person and seeing first-hand the fantastic support and advice they provide.

We were also joined by the Bishop of Lynn, the Rt Rev Dr Jane Steen, to chat about all things Norfolk and Mid Norfolk, as well as the work that the Church are doing to support our local communities.

I look forward to continuing these conversations in the weeks and months ahead, and to seeing all the hard work pay off.
