What we offer

The GREAT Project is here to help individuals within families move toward employment and training.

Rather than provide a one-size-fits-all solution, we’ll work with you to understand the challenges that you face. Together, we will then design a support package that’s right for you.

Support you can access

When you get involved with the GREAT Project, you’ll be able to access support from our partners. This support includes:

  • Health assessments, diagnosis support and occupational health support, to help you overcome any health-related barriers to work and training
  • Support with key employment skills, like CV writing and interviewing
  • Taster days and work experience in a range of industries
  • Help with managing your money, including accounts that accommodate Sharia law
  • Focused support for communities with particular needs, such as the Eastern European population
  • Work clubs in libraries to offer one-to-one support with job searching
  • Confidence building courses
  • Childcare support, so you can attend the courses that best fit your needs
  • Vocational training courses offering qualifications. These include female-only courses where needed

Each individual is different, so throughout the process of building your support package, you’ll receive one-to-one support from a support worker. Together, you’ll build a plan which takes your individual needs, goals and challenges into account.

Who we help

We want to hear about the challenges you face if you:

  • are not working
  • are a member of a family
  • live in Leicester or Leicestershire
  • not currently in training
  • are aged 18 or older
