Steps Ahead

What is it:

Steps Ahead is a new employment, education and training programme.

Everybody has talents, and we can help you to play to your strengths and use what you already have to access the education, training, and employment that is right for you.

Through work to improve your wellbeing, develop your talents, and to improve your confidence and resilience, we can help you to address the challenges you face and move you towards a long-term and fulfilling career.

Who is it for:

Steps Ahead is a service for young adults aged 18 to 25 who have been out of work or training for over a year due to mental health difficulties who want to find work or training. Users of the service don’t have to be claiming benefits but you must have the right to work in the UK.

If you have additional challenges, we are happy to see if the service will work for you, but you need to have somewhere safe to stay even if it’s only temporary.
