Changing Futures – Project Overview
Selnet has been successful in securing this new project as part of the Building Better Opportunities programme. Changing Futures aims to support 1,000 people who are most at risk of exclusion from the labour market to identify, reduce and remove their barriers to employment. The project will be delivered across Lancashire with a focus on areas where there are high levels of poverty, targeting Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups, women, people with physical and/or mental health issues and learning difficulties.
The project will have a considerable long-term positive impact on the lives of some of the most disadvantaged unemployed or economically inactive people in Lancashire. In addition, it will increase confidence, self-esteem and motivation; build lasting networks of support; improve health and wellbeing; and help to develop skills that will enable participants to move towards learning and work.
