Positive People Programme
The Positive People Programme is joint funded by ESF and the Big Lottery Fund to support unemployed individuals into education, training or paid work. We work closely on a one to one basis with individuals to remove barriers that are stopping them from progressing towards their chosen goals. Clients do not have to be linked in with Addaction or have issues with substance use, just a desire to progress towards a better future. We are not linked to the jobcentre and engagement with our programme does not affect anyone’s entitlement to benefits.
As a way to introduce ourselves to a group of interested people, we can offer an ‘engagement activity’ such as a free session of water sports/bushcraft/ family cooking session etc. We feel this allows the group to see us at our most open and honest. We accept referrals from a wide range of external agencies, such as National Careers Service, Social Care, Cornwall Refuge Trust, Women’s Centre plus many other health and social care sectors.
We have supported people into paid work, life long careers, short courses, university and volunteering placements. We have delivered tailor-made confidence courses, delivered women only provision and much more. We are a programme that is very much service user led, which means that we are flexible to their needs and challenges.
I welcome your thoughts about how we may work together to support your parents/families.
