The Building Better Opportunities Programme (BBO) principal goal is to improve local growth and create jobs, by investing in Innovation, Business, Skills and Employment.

Most importantly the programme aims to achieve real employment and self-employment outcomes, by guiding and supporting people to overcome their own barriers to employment and by providing an inclusive In-Work Support service to ensure employment outcomes are sustained.

Opportunity and Change is an employment-related support project for people facing severe and multiple disadvantage. It is delivered by a partnership of community-based organisations across the D2N2 area

The Towards Work programme will support you with those first steps towards gaining employment.  For employers, Towards Work delivers a recruitment solution with no cost to an employer through a partnership of local organisations who specialise in supporting people into work
