Goodwill Solutions CIC – Building Better Opportunities Work Readiness Action Programme (BBO WRAP)
Written by Martin Steers on July 28, 2020
Building Better Opportunities (BBO) brings together funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) to help tackle the poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in Northamptonshire
The National Lottery Community Fund is matching funds from the European Social Fund (ESF) 2014-2020 to invest in local projects tackling the root causes of poverty, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth.
Building Better Opportunities projects will support more than 100,000 people overall. The programme will help these individuals to overcome multiple complex needs, build confidence and resilience, and become less isolated from their local communities.
Goodwill Solutions CIC is partnered with seven Northamptonshire based organisations to deliver the Work Readiness Action Programme (WRAP), a £1.4 million Building Better Opportunities (BBO) project, engaging, supporting and helping people into employment. WRAP looks at the challenges people face, provides access to pre-employment programmes and reduces barriers to work through skills development and vocational training that help people gain the skills they need to find and keep a job. This project is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund, and commenced in August 2016. Through this project which ends in 2022, Goodwill Solutions CIC and their partners aim to support people in the county on their journey towards employment.
