Equipped for a fresh start.

Thousands of people are just one payday away from not being able to pay their rent. Losing your job can mean living on the streets is your only option.

Through our training and skills programmes, we support people who are furthest from the job market to get back into employment.

“I wanted to find work but had been out of employment for so long I didn’t know where to start”.


We help make people more visible to not just potential future employers, but also to themselves.

We help people develop skills such as CV writing, budgeting, interview techniques and accessing training to improve their chances of finding the right job for them.

Our Aspire teams work closely with Wise Steps; funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund, Wise Steps delivers support for people in Tyne and Wear that want to transform their lives. Wise Steps provides one-to-one support to people facing barriers, assisting them to access employment and work experience opportunities.
