The National Lottery Community Fund and European Social Fund have granted Hertfordshire County Council £5.5 million to help boost skills for residents.

All participants on the project will receive intensive one-to-one support from a mentor to understand and address their barriers to learning and employment. They will be offered skills to help them secure work experience placements, volunteering opportunities or apprenticeships.

Each mentor can support with:

  • Working with the participant to identify possible barriers and support needs.
  • Working with the participant to put development plans in place.
  • Helping the participant to develop though signposting and helping to access engagement activities with The Trust or any of the other BBO partner organisations.
  • Help for transition into sustainable employment, volunteering or further education.

With a history of improving wellbeing, developing confidence, knowledge and skills, specifically through the delivery of employability programs, the Trust is excited to be involved in the Building Better Opportunities Programme.
