Help if you've lost your job

We're working with Citizens' Advice to make all their great help available to speakers of other languages.   If you've lost your job, you'll find all kinds of help available to sort out your problems and  get back into work. 

It's not easy if English is not your first language, and but our multi-linguistic team can help.  Don't forget that if you're an EU citizen, you need to apply for EUSS status NOW!
