Y Aspire Project – Supporting local young people back in to education or work

Do you want help to get sorted and move forward but there are obstacles in the way? Are things stopping you following your aspirations?

Y Aspire is looking to support people back into education or work. We will provide a 1:1 mentor who will work with you building your confidence, skills and reducing barriers for you to move forward.

Y Aspire will provide support and creative programs to enable you to access employment, education and training opportunities. We will help you with job applications, CV’s & interview techniques and support your emotional mental health.

Your mentor will also support you in arranging volunteer and/or work experience and exploring options. The only requirement is the desire to work or learn.

Since the launch of the project we have already seen positive results to mental health, confidence and for some job offers accepted. The service doesn’t stop when you get the job or course, we continue to check in to support you in those first few months as a friendly face.

To get involved or to refer someone please contact Lorna on 07971 027569
