Did you know that as a Karbon customer you get exclusive access to our Foundations for Life Team?

Whether you’re in work, out of work, long-term sick or just looking to gain some new skills, digital skills or volunteering, we’re here to help you. We offer all kinds of support and advice services. So, what’s new?


We’re working harder than ever to support customers and their changing circumstances by finding them work, education or training. Could you be next?


Need help to get online? Our new ICT lending scheme is helping residents to stay connected to family and friends and continue job searches and training. This trial service involves us lending out tablets and smart phones, and supporting the first few months of data costs.

Kickstart Scheme

We’re part of this exciting new Government project to give a helping hand to young people aged 16-24 who are claiming Universal Credit. The scheme offers a six-month paid job with a local employer and the chance to get some valuable work experience. We’re working with lots of local partners to find opportunities for our residents.
