Positive People Project

Inspiring you to build a brighter future

Everyone should have the chance to succeed in life, to develop skills and build a career. Positive People is a flexible community programme designed to help you take positive steps towards building your confidence, gaining new skills, and eventually move into work or training.

Help with everyday life:

  • Personal development – help to build your confidence, health and well-being.
  • Help to master digital technology – including computers, tablets, phones, software and the internet.
  • Signpost you to benefits, advice and financial advice

Improve your qualifications and help you to find work:

  • Help to access training – anything from basic skills to vocational and professional qualifications.
  • Help to prepare for work – including clubs and work trials so you can try out jobs and gain experience.
  • Job search – preparing CVs, applications and interview practice. We will also help you to approach employers.
  • Access to computers, internet, printers and photocopiers.
  • Advice on apprenticeships and self-employment.

Positive People (part of the Building Better Opportunities programme) is a project jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund and is funded up until September 2022.
