Step Forward Tees Valley supports local people to overcome the complex reasons preventing them from finding work. These barriers could include physical or mental ill health, a lack of self-confidence, a gap in skills, a conviction, or an addiction. The project helps people to build on their strengths and aspirations, using the skills and expertise of partners and local employers to achieve their goals. The project is committed to making a real and lasting change in Tees Valley.
Step Forward Tees Valley supports people across Tees Valley to take advantage of existing voluntary or employment possibilities, as well as working with local employers to create new opportunities.
Step Forward Tees Valley is funded by The European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
