Matrix offers a direct access facility located in the Colchester town centre providing both informal IT skills development and employability support as well as continuing to coordinate the distribution of the Big Issue magazine throughout the area.
Since it was set up nearly twelve years ago Matrix has predominantly worked with people disadvantaged in the labour market and those who come from hard to reach groups.
As a result of the current economic climate these hard to reach groups are being further threatened by social exclusion; they include disabled people, people over 50 years of age, people with low qualifications, single parents, rural workers, and marginalised groups such as ex-offenders, those with mental health issues, homeless people, immigrants, long-term unemployed, and ethnic minorities.
Matrix has a well equipped computer suite along with work areas for group and one to one support; the centre is open Monday – Friday 10am till 4pm.
