Our partners at The Feed are thrilled to announce their new project: New Leaf! This project aims to help those who are Ex-Offenders or veterans of the British Armed Forces back into education/training as well as finding employment on a weekly basis.
What is New Leaf?
It is a project set up to support people into education, training, job search and employment.
Who does it support?
Men and women with an offending history and veterans of the British armed forces. You have to be over 25 years of age and unemployed for six months or longer and can live anywhere in Norfolk.
What can I expect from New Leaf?
You will have a weekly support session with an Opportunities Coach, M-C, in one of The Feed’s welcoming cafes. The support is focused on building confidence, learning new skills and developing work-ready behaviours. M-C will work with you to help you to set and achieve realistic goals, so that you can make positive and lasting change. A remote support service via the telephone or digital platforms can be provided if that is more comfortable. The Feed has excellent links with employers and extensive knowledge of local training providers.
Who runs New Leaf?
It is run by The Feed, a social enterprise in Norwich which works to prevent poverty, hunger and homelessness, and is part of the Norfolk Community College, Building Better Opportunities Programme, funded by The National Lottery Community fund and the European Social Fund.
How do I get involved?
Contact M-C on 07547 672890 or pop into The Feed at 78-80 Prince of Wales Road, Norwich.
