European Social Fund Employability Outreach Service

A holistic approach to helping clients with extensive barriers in support of them realising their potential and progression.

European Social Fund The ESF Employability Outreach provides direct support to clients with multiple barriers to employment, those furthest from the labour market, and those in employment or self-employment. It helps to improve their lives by supporting them into learning new skills and progressing them into finding work, particularly in rural communities.

Our highly skilled team will work with an individual clients' circumstances to produce an action plan and meet/engage with the client regularly to aid progression.

There is a high degree of integration within this project. Working in partnership with other organisations, we ensure clients are provided the best possible chance to succeed in reaching their goals, affecting positive change in their lives.
