Steps to Progress will develop participants confidence, resilience and skills to support their progress towards education, training and employment.  

The project offers people affected by homelessness the tools to move closer to their long-term goals such as education, training, volunteering and employment. 

Our courses run in 15-week segments in three areas: 

Workshops encourage participants to explore solutions and reflect on their progress together.  

External professionals introduce specialist knowledge that course participants may have never thought about before. 


What to expect?

Weekly sessions have a different topic each week: wellbeing; resilience; reflection; communication skills; emotional intelligence; goals; employability skills; motivation; self-esteem. 

Our mentors support individuals to create personal learning plans and post-course support to aid their on-going progression. 

The project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. 

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund is a central pillar of the UK government’s Levelling Up agenda and provides £2.6 billion across the UK, of funding for local investment by March 2025.
