Situation

We want to make a significant impact with assisting clients back into training/education or the workforce. We feel this is an important piece of work which will benefit the client by enabling them to have easy access to advice and information which includes employment guidance. We would like to be seen as an agency which looks beyond substance use and an innovative organisation which assists our client group back into mainstream society to make a positive impact. We would like to challenge the perceptions of the wider community by providing opportunities for a client group who quite often is portrayed in a very negative way. If we were able to secure funding it will enable us to develop an employment/education approach to our work. This will ensure our clients receive a service from someone who understands their needs and difficulties. Links will be made with local education providers and potential employers. It is important that the clients receive good advice and guidance around the impact of returning to employment or education will have on their life. This can be achieved through a service being based within our agency.
