The Job Centre can help you to find work. There is Job Centre on Penny Street in Blackburn. Find the Jobcentre on a map.

There is no Job Centre in Darwen.

Staff at the Job Centre can help you to find a job. They can also help you apply for some benefits – this is money you can use to pay your bills while you look for a job.

The types of benefits available include Jobseeker’s Allowance, Incapacity Benefit, Employment and Support Allowance and Income Support.

Not everyone who comes to live in the UK can work here. Before applying for a job, you must check if you have the right to work.

You can work if you have received:

  • Refugee Status
  • Leave to Remain

We are adding more information to this page soon.
