The secretarial service is used by unemployed and employed persons, students and the general public. Those in receipt of social welfare payments are offered a reduced rate for typing. Because of low income, many social welfare recipients lack access to the resources needed for job seeking or contact with statutory organisations etc. The secretarial service, to some extent, compensates for this by the provision of CV’s, letters, assignments, projects and all other typing requirements. The Centre also aids job seekers to fill in on-line applications for vacancies.
