Reaching Out Across Durham (ROAD) brings together 8 well respected voluntary and community service organisations (hosted by Groundwork NE & Cumbria) who want to make a real difference to the lives of people who live in County Durham and are aged 25 and over. We will achieve this by providing 1 to 1 tailored and intensive support that encourages and enables participants to achieve their goals, supporting them to overcome challenges and barriers, as they move towards employment, education and training. Participants will receive bespoke support including health and wellbeing, finance, employability and digital, from specialists as well as accessing a range of training and vocational courses and guidance, support and advice on any area needed to enable participants to make positive choices.
ROAD is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund until October 2022.
