New project to help improve quality of life is launched
A new project aimed at improving the quality of life of individuals and communities in Northumberland has been launched.
The My Life, My Way project will deliver six-week employability and emotional support programmes to residents and communities.
The project, delivered by Stepping Up (North East), will involve tailored support and one-to-one coaching to help residents become job-ready.
Coaching will prepare residents for the workplace by developing their confidence, reviewing CVs, practising interviews, learning to balance work and home commitments, and exploring other options, such as self-employment.
Programmes will be delivered in Prudhoe, Hadston and Widdrington Station, and mindfulness-based courses will be offered in Berwick, Alnwick, Hadston and Ponteland.
Karbon Homes has invested £12,000 into the project.
Mary Ormston, community engagement officer from Karbon Homes, said: “We are focussed on developing and improving our communities and supporting residents to achieve their goals.
“This project provides tailored one-to-one support and pre-employability training to help residents.”
