Called GEM (Going the Extra Mile), its aim is to engage with Gloucestershire’s hardest to reach, most vulnerable unemployed and financially-excluded people, who face multiple barriers to work.
The primary objective is to move these people closer towards education, training, volunteering or work, including self-employment.
It is funded by £3.2 million from the EU, managed via the National Lottery.
Community Family Care has been chosen as one of 22 delivery partners whose roles will include pre-engagement, referrals and output delivery. The fact that we have been selected is indicative of Community Family Care’s growing reputation and the quality of its work.
