Positive People offers a lifeline to people who are not in work to build confidence and hope.
The first programme of its kind in Somerset, ‘Positive People’ will help over 1,000 individuals who are out of work to build their confidence and develop their skills. The programme will be personally tailored to individual needs and will include help with personal development, health and wellbeing, and to develop life-skills including digital technology.
Partners began to deliver the £4 million programme in March 2017 and will deliver the project over the next three years. Pluss’ Chief Executive, Steve Hawkins, said “Positive People will support hundreds of people across Somerset to overcome a range of barriers and build a brighter future for themselves and their families”.
