AN Ulverston man is tackling joblessness across the Furness area through a pilot scheme.

Grant Huck, job coach at Right2Work, is spearheading the new exclusive scheme, which will enable more support for young and middle-aged people in the area who wants to get into work.

Mr Huck said: "I have only 12 months to prove its viability.

"If successful, we could gain permanent funding, which could have significant benefits for people in the area.

"I'll work with applicants on the scheme on a one-to-one basis." If interested, contact:
