The GREAT Project is here to help families who are not currently in employment or training move toward work.
Rather than offering a one-size-fits-all solution, we’ll work with you to understand the challenges you face.
Over three quarters of people we work with are women. Find out about our campaign to recruit more GREAT men.

The GREAT Project gave me the confidence to go out and implement everything I’ve learnt. It really helped me overcome any barriers I had, and I feel really positive about meeting new people. I 100% support what the GREAT Project does, and encourage others to do it too.
“The GREAT Project really helped me increase my confidence and encouraged me to come out of my comfort zone. I got to speak to new people, learnt new skills and I also learnt how to feel better about travelling alone. Most importantly though, I got the chance to work in a retail environment.”
“If you’re considering joining a programme like this, then join the GREAT Project. Learning more about the skills I already possessed and talking to others in a similar situation helped me no end. Take the step to join, because there’s nothing to lose but plenty to gain.”
“Even if you’re nervous, just do it. I was really nervous but I pushed myself to do it. It made me more independent and helped me with my barriers. I’m more confident and motivated now, and I learnt that I can do more than I thought.”
“The GREAT Project has helped me so much. I was quite shy and worried about finding a job, particularly the interview process, but this helped me so much. It really is a great team that makes you feel valued and comfortable.”
