What's involved?

We offer three levels of engagement:

Level 1: Spark

A short half-day engagement or ‘Spark Event’ where clients can test out an activity of their choice, ranging from sports and outdoor activities, to arts & crafts, taster courses, or work experience. The aim of the Spark Event is to introduce clients to something new, get them out of their comfort zone and find their spark. 

Level 2: Explore

An engagement where clients can take part in a camp, community challenge, short work placement; undertake a social action project, or receive training & business support​. Through these engagements clients are given the opportunity to build confidence, meet new people and challenge themselves as well as developing crucial skills such as creative thinking, problem solving and team work.

Level 3: Expand

An individual, personalised engagement, the length of which is dependent on the client’s progression. Each client is supported by an Empowerment Coach to work through a personal development plan, building skills relevant to the work they want to do and helping them overcome specific barriers to work.

Clients can join/be referred to the programme at any level, at which time they will start work with one of our dedicated Empowerment Coaches. The Groundwork Enterprise Team, work with clients to start businesses, develop business ideas and undertake further training to make their dreams a reality.
