Active Prospects Receives Grant for Employability Programme

Active Prospects is delighted to have been awarded £7000 by the Community Foundation for Surrey towards its Future Prospects – Employability Programme.

The Grant, made from the Bryn Siriol Fund and the Gatwick Foundation Fund, will allow us to fund an employability specialist to support people with learning disabilities and mental health needs to progress on a pathway towards paid employment. Participants will be supported to overcome barriers to work through a mixture of group training and intensive 1:1 support, during a 12 week programme. Following the course participants will be supported to progress to paid jobs or volunteer opportunities, including roles within Active Prospects new charity shop, due to open in Horley in May 2017.
