Our Aspirations service will help people find work

We’ve been chosen to deliver a new service for people who have had mental health conditions which have become a barrier to finding work.

Aspirations will help them deal with the difficulties in gaining employment that mental health conditions can create. It will also help people to live more positively and regain their independence.

“Mental ill health can make everyday tasks seem overwhelming,” said Porchlight’s Barbara van Minnen. “If you’re out of work, it can affect self-belief and subsequently your chances of getting a job. Our Aspirations service will help people who have not found the support they need in their community.”

‘Aspirations’ will be running in Kent and East Sussex. We’re delivering it with North Kent Mind, Runway Training and Horizons CIC.

It is being made possible thanks to a Building Better Opportunities grant from the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund.
