Are there opportunities for you to volunteer in your area?


It costs nothing but your time, as most organisations cover expenses for volunteers. This could be anything from sorting mail in a post office to volunteering in a local council dept.


Alternatively you could find voluntary work in a boatyard or similar, if boats are your thing- show a little bit of willing, offer to make the teas for the day and do the sweeping up, within a month if you can move onto something with a tool in your hand you are gaining something that is worth far more than money to a potential employer- experience.


It can be very hard work not going home with a wage, but it can also be a very satisfying and rewarding experience, and 'employers' that you volunteer for often find ways of rewarding you in other ways apart from a wage.


Best of luck in your search for employment.

You could always try giving an employer a reason to pick you out from similar applicants. Employers often need to comply with health and safety regs by supplying a first aider.  One who holds a certificate for first aid at work. Maybe St Johns ambulance or the dole could help you get one. Just a thought - used my first aid many times outside work too; even a dog that the vet said would certainly have died.
