We are working in partnership with Wheatsheaf Trust, a charity aimed at helping people disadvantaged in the labour market including young people who have become disconnected from the mainstream and unemployed adults, including those with disabilities and long term health conditions. We believe everyone has something to contribute and should have a second chance at learning, work and personal development. We put people at the heart of what we do, and work with a range of local partners to deliver sustainable outcomes that go beyond simply finding people a job.
