Building Better Opportunities aims to tackle the poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in England. The Suffolk Building Better Opportunities project for young people (aged 15 to 24), ‘Minding the Gap’, provides targeted and intensive support for young people in Suffolk who are unemployed or economically inactive, who face significant challenges/barriers to accessing employment and are currently/or at risk of social isolation, to gain and sustain employment and education.
Community Action Suffolk is the lead partner of a partnership with eight other organisations across Suffolk who will jointly deliver the project, working together to ensure disadvantaged young people in Suffolk have the best opportunities for progression available to them.
The project will take place between February 2017 and September 2019 and will include provision throughout urban, rural and coastal communities. Individualised programmes will be delivered according to needs of the young people on the project with a focus on personal development as well as education and employment.
