What we do

Help people to find progress towards working or volunteering.

Providing each person with 1:1 guidance and where relevant accredited training.

Working with each person to identify what they want to do and agree on the best way to get there.

Training groups are small, usually between 2-6 people.

The only eligibility is that the person lives in EH5, EH6 or EH7.

There are no structured programme time tables, we progress at the pace that suits the person and should the person need to return at a later date they can do so.
