Step Ahead Into Work

Our Step Ahead into Work project aims to support out of work adults aged 18 or over living in the Coast to Capital area addressing the individual issues and challenges confronting them, so they can progress successfully into sustained employment. We offer a range of bespoke support for disadvantaged people aimed at providing the activities and guidance necessary for them to deal with their employability and skills barriers, alongside direct opportunities to enter employment thus improving their social mobility and addressing relative deprivation. Our Step Ahead into Work project aims to support out of work adults aged 18 or over living in the Coast to Capital area addressing the individual issues and challenges confronting them, so they can progress successfully into sustained employment.
