Founded in 2009 by two ladies from Dunstable, DLDD Trust was established to enhance the job prospects of the residents of the Dunstable area whilst increasing the levels of community spirit and engagement across the local residents.
It is our missions to work with the people of Dunstable to support them in finding exciting job opportunities through the provision of training, soft skill enhancement, appropriate interview and work clothing in addition to transport assistance.
It is our belief that working with local people and businesses we can help to foster a high growth, highly skilled local workforce that will encourage entrepreneurialism and ultimately improve the life and prospects of the people of Dunstable.
Dunstable is a market town and civil parish located in Bedfordshire, this town has a rich history, with links to roman and medieval events. In the past decades, the town has fallen into neglect and disrepair, DLDD/Long Live Dunstable is aiming to foster the rejuvenation of this wonderful town and surrounding areas.

Having a well written, properly spelled and formatted CV is the first step to enhancing the employability of an individual allowing them to get the interview opportunities to be able to display their reliability and enthusiasm to a prospective employer.

In the modern age more and more of our social interactions tend to be impersonal with the growth of online social media and mobile telephony. This often means that individuals have less of the face to face interactions necessary to develop the confidence to do an effective interview.

In Dunstable we still have many successful people who are prepared to devote their time free of charge to help those who require guidance to achieve their life goals and objectives.

Too many people are still attempting to enter the workforce without the appropriate basic IT skills required to perform many necessary day to day tasks.
In conjunction with our training partner (the people you mentioned in Ashton Square) your contribution will help to endow all the necessary IT skills required in modern business environments.
The cost of transport is a major barrier to some individuals looking to enter the workforce, imagine a scenario where you manage to get the job of your dreams but as a result of your current circumstances you are unable to pay the first months travel to get yourself to the job resulting in you being unable to achieve your potential. This is the scenario faced by many people in today’s society with transport costs continually escalating. This can often result in people taking out payday loans at exorbitant interest rates, entering them into a debt cycle which can be difficult to recover from for those starting out on the career ladder. Your contribution will help us to fund this first months travel ensuring they get a clean start to their new employment and are able to fulfil their dreams.
