Time for a Change - The Time for a Change programme helps you to increase your confidence and identify your goals and aspirations. It provides practical training to increase your employability skills, money management, IT skills and how to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. Time for a Change is also a chance to gain some new qualifications. The team will continue to support you after you have completed the course to help you to move on to further training, college or work.

Our team offers support to help you achieve your goals, explore opportunities available and gives you the chance to talk through any worries or concerns you may have. This is a city wide service working with young people aged 15-24 (26 for care leavers) who are pregnant or have children.

Positive Family Futures – The Positive Family Futures is a new project that encourages people to make positive changes within their own lives and the lives of others by coming together to share experiences and skills. The project is guided by a steering group made up of local people. Please contact us if you are interested in being involved in this group. We respond to the needs of the community. We support local people by providing advice, information and assistance to take part in activities in the community, as well as start-up, deliver and continue to run activities.

We also hold events for people in the area and the space is available for hire for a range of activities – for example, children’s parties and hosting groups the community would like to get involved in.
