New Leaf is proud to announce a number of specialist partners have recently joined the project.
Having already helped over 1,000 people across Warrington and Cheshire since the 3 year programme began, through the range of additional services on offer, even more one-to-one support can now be provided.
The £10.6 million employment project works with over 25 organisations to provide dedicated mentors for people who have previously found securing and sustaining a job difficult.
Andy Rawlins, New Leaf Programme Manager said: “Partnership working is what makes New Leaf so different to other employment initiatives and we are really pleased to welcome such esteemed organisations on board.
Groundwork as well as Cheshire Without Abuse will work alongside our existing outreach and engagement partners, while rehabilitation and mental health charities, Acorn Recovery Projects and Making Space will help participants address a range of barriers affecting their lives.”
Led by Golden Gates Housing Trust (GGHT), New Leaf will run until October 2019 and is part of the Building Better Opportunities programme funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.
