We have applied for funding to be able to offer a 12-week Employability Programme that will offer intensive support for up to 12 people, with a range of support needs, to gain skills to prepare them for work.
We will recruit an experienced co-ordinator to deliver both one-to-one and group sessions that will support people to progress towards individual outcomes. This may be further training, volunteering, supported employment or work.
Those participating will develop skills such as travelling independently, team-working, independent living skills, IT skills, taking personal responsibility and so on. All those attending will receive a Certificate at an awards ceremony at the end of the course and will be facilitated to remain in contact through social media and follow up events so they benefit from ongoing peer support.
