Isle of Wight Council has launched an initiative to support jobseekers travelling to interviews and jobs.

The sustainable travel support scheme will provide travel advice and training for active jobseekers on the Island, and offer support with the cost.

It will play a huge role in boosting economic growth by helping people to access employment and training opportunities that they would have previously avoided due to the costs involved with travelling.
