Cumbria - Building Better Opportunities

This programme is funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the National Lottery Community Fund who are co-investing in local projects tackling the root causes of worklessness, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth. It is one of three projects in Cumbria being jointly funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund. including one in Allerdale & Copeland led by Groundwork and one in Carlisle & Eden led by WEA. Funding for BBO GCtW has been extended and will now end December 2020.

This project aims to support and work with individuals who are facing multiple and complex barriers to employment and who are furthest removed from the labour market. It will help them to move towards and into employment by supporting them to play a greater, more productive role in their communities, demonstrate increased skills and confidence and be much more likely to consider employment or volunteering as a viable prospect.
