Wise Steps helps local people transform their lives, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund. Our project provides customers with one-to-one tailored support to help you make the first steps towards getting into work.

A key aspect of the Wise Steps programme is that it recognises the need to improve individual wellbeing as an anchor for helping people feel happy and confident to move towards work.
