Northumberland Community Enterprise Ltd

Employment Support at Northumberland Community Enterprise LtdNCEL was set up in 2008 as a Social Enterprise with the aim of providing opportunity for disadvantaged people. NCEL intends to tackle worklessness, digital exclusion and social isolation throughout Stobhill and the surrounding area. We work closely with residents from the local area in an effort to create a stronger sense of community spirit and to improved the physical and economical conditions of life in Stobhill. 

The aim of the organisation is to improve the quality of life of those in our local community, particularly targeting those disadvantaged, the elderly and disabled. NCEL works with a wide and varied age range as we provide services and activities to facilitate individual development and community integration. 

Since the early days, NCEL has introduced a variety of initiatives, which have given many disadvantaged people the opportunity to improve their social welfare, and for those who wish to, the opportunity to develop their skills and training in order for them to enhance their abilities and employment prospects. 

We aim to ensure that members of the community are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively apply for, prepare for and become successful in finding work. 

NCEL operates from the Stobhill Community Link office based on Shields Road in Stobhill, Morpeth. We are situated on a direct bus route leading into Morpeth Town Centre. NCEL offers a friendly atmosphere and has a realistic approach towards job search and training.
