Moving On Tyne & Wear

Together with our Northern Inclusion Consortium partners, we are delighted to be a provider of an innovative new project called Moving On Tyne & Wear. This project is joint-funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund, as part of their investment in local projects that tackle the root causes of poverty and promote social inclusion.

Who we work with

The project supports people in Tyne and Wear who are aged 25+ and out of work due to complex health issues and other barriers, such as long-term unemployment, debt, low skills, or housing issues.

From 2017-2019, we will work with over 1,600 people, supporting them to take advantage of existing voluntary or employment possibilities, and work with local employers to create new opportunities.

How we can help

We can help participants to build on their strengths and aspirations, using the skills and expertise of partners and local employers to achieve their goals. We are committed to making a real and lasting change in Tyne and Wear.

The support we provide includes:

  • one-to-one support
  • access to training
  • volunteering
  • work placements
  • support with job interviews and writing CVs
  • peer mentor programmes
  • self-employment advice
