  • Provide “Wrap Around” support, capitalising on partner agencies bespoke skill sets to offer a suite of services to improve resilience, develop life-skills, provide access to mediation, 1:1 support and professional counselling and help tackle substance and alcohol misuse.
  • Improve the health and wellbeing of participants and support positive choices surrounding lifestyle, mental and sexual health and boost self-esteem and confidence.


  • Support participants in seeking and gaining employment through assistance in C.V. writing, preparation for interviews and ongoing guidance and interaction beyond the job offer to boost the likelihood of retention.
