We’re pleased to have been part of the Legacy 6 programme, which supported young people aged 18-24 years old who were furthest from the labour market into employment or training.
Bob Adams was our Coach Plus and provided tailored support that met young people’s individual needs for both wellbeing and employment. 20 young people who were identified from our Talent Match programme worked with Bob and an experienced team of occupational health therapists and counselors to move into appropriate employment, apprenticeships, training or education.
Bob says: “I was really pleased to continue working with some of the young people I began working with through Talent Match. We saw plenty of success stories from small personal accomplishments to gaining employment in their chosen field and to completing educational studies.”
As part of Legacy 6 we also ran a highly successful Rehearsal for Life course which used applied theatre techniques to allow participants to develop the skills needed for work and personal life. These ran across South Yorkshire and you can watch the short film below to find out more.
Legacy 6 was funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
