Swindon and Wiltshire
This area will benefit from £4,000,000 Building Better Opportunities funding.
The Building Bridges programme supports people across Swindon and Wiltshire who are facing significant challenges in developing their skills, accessing education or moving towards the world of work. This project has a focus on individuals whose needs are not being met by mainstream programmes alone. Each participant will have someone who works with them as a mentor, helping them to access support from across the partnership. With permission, these mentors can also work with family members, carers, key workers or other people supporting the individual. Specialist help is available in a number of areas including developing physical and mental wellbeing, accessing debt and financial advice and help with issues such as transport and childcare.
