Step Forward Tees Valley

Are you looking for work but lack confidence or have health issues that affect you?   We can help you build on your strengths to overcome the challenges you face.

We will work closely with our partners to help you overcome any barriers to your progress; this could range from improving confidence levels through to specialist employment and skills.  We’ll work with you to develop a tailor made plan that builds on your strengths.

The project helps you to build on your strengths and aspirations, using the skills and expertise of partners and local employers to achieve your goals. 

Step Forward Tees Valley supports local people to overcome the complex reasons preventing them from finding work. These barriers could include physical or mental ill health, a lack of self-confidence, a gap in skills, a conviction, or an addiction.

We support people across Tees Valley to take advantage of existing voluntary or employment possibilities, as well as working with local employers to create new opportunities.  The project is committed to making a real and lasting change in the Tees Valley.

Step Forward Tees Valley is funded by The European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
