‘4Es to Employment,’ course to run in Windsor

thanks to The Prince Philip Trust Fund

At Browns Community Services CIC, we are delighted to have been awarded a grant from The Prince Philip Trust Fund.


Our ‘4Es to Employment,’ course has taken place in various locations, and is currently running for residents of Wokingham. With the grant from The Prince Philip Trust Fund, we will be able to run the course in Windsor for the first time. 


‘4Es to Employment,’ aims to educate, empower and encourage all clients, who may be unemployed, ex-offenders or from low-income households, on the road to employment. Previous ‘4Es to Employment,’ courses have a 98% success rate of moving participants into work, voluntary roles or education. 


Chris Aitken, Secretary and Trustee for The Prince Philip Trust Fund, said, “The services that Browns Community Services CIC offer to some of the most vulnerable and excluded adults in our community is making a real difference to individuals and families particularly as they give their clients practical skills and confidence to move forward with their lives. The Prince Philip Trust Fund is delighted to be able support the charity with grant funds this year.  We wish them every success in their outreach, mentoring and counselling work."


Angeline Gore, Founder and CEO of Browns Community Services CIC, said, “We are thrilled to be bringing our successful ‘4Es to Employment,’ course to Windsor, thanks to The Prince Philip Trust Fund. We are following on from our success in other areas across Berkshire and Surrey.”




‘4Es to Employment,’ courses for Wokingham residents

We are delighted to be running two ‘4Es to Employment,’ courses for residents of Norreys, Gorse Ride and St Sebastian’s in Wokingham.


The courses are for those who have been unemployed long-term and those who are ex-offenders.


The two ‘4Es to Employment,’ courses will cover all areas of job hunting, including CV writing and interview preparation. All participants will also receive one-to-one follow up support, to tailor the skills learned in the course to their specific circumstance.


The courses will be conducted in safe, supportive settings. Previous ‘4Es to Employment,’ courses have a 98% success rate of moving participants into work, volunteering roles or education.

Both courses are absolutely free to attend and Browns Community Services can reimburse participants’ travel costs to and from the course venue in Bracknell, subject to prior agreement.

Both courses follow the same structure, so participants can attend the one that suits them best.


The dates for the first course are: 12th, 13th, 27th and 28th June 2019
The dates for the second course are: 17th, 18th and 19th July 2019


If you are from the three areas mentioned above, please email info@brownscs.co.uk, or telephone 07508 194 940, to book your place or receive more information.


We look forward to meeting the first participants later in the month.
