The aim of 360 Journey to Work is to empower clients who are looking to enter the paid or voluntary job market and find the usual channels more challenging.
We offer support to those who want to gain employment whilst helping people gain in self confidence and building their self esteem.
Through intentional mentoring clients build trusted relationships, gaining in self confidence and self esteem. Clients come to recognise their self worth through the bespoke creative 10 week course they attend. This course is run throughout the year on a rolling timetable.
Alongside this, clients can now access Breakfast drop in sessions to use laptops, telephones and WiFi working closely with mentors, writing CV's and applying for positions. An important aspect is our belief that good relationships are one of the keys to a thriving community and confident individuals.

Some of the employers we have worked with said:
'I just wanted to express my gratitude. We were shy of trying someone out for such a long time, scared of the time it would take to find/iterate someone suitable. It looks like you have eliminated that obstacle.'
