Bridge2Work Project - How can it help?

The Bridge2Work project supports people across the Solent area affected by complex and multiple barriers towards and into work.

The project is supported through the Building Better Opportunities programme, which is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund (ESF). It is being delivered by Wheatsheaf Trust in partnership with Portsmouth City Council and Solent Mind.

Bridge2Work focuses on offering paid work which is designed to meet a person's needs and allow them to test their ability to perform in the labour market and build their confidence and resilience.

We help people with:

  1. Personalised 1-1 support from a dedicated Personal Advisor to put together and work through a tailored Progression Plan with specific actions to overcome barriers to work.
  2. Informal group training sessions to help develop coping strategies, develop skills and build confidence and motivation at a manageable pace.
  3. Paid work placements tailored to the individual for up to 6 months (16 to 25 hours per week) with understanding employers providing an opportunity to prove to the employer and to the individual themselves what they are capable of.

If you would be interested to find out more or you are a professional working with people that might be interested then do get in touch whichever way is easiest for you:
