Our projects

Tyne & Wear Projects

The Pathways Project

The Pathways project provides tailored employment support for people with autism or learning difficulties. Specialist teams of Health Pathways officers and Job Coaches work with participants who have additional needs to get them closer to work.


Employer Engagement

Our Employer Engagement team connects businesses with our talented pool of participants. As well as helping to create job opportunities for the people on the programme, the team deliver training to organisations across the area about how to be a more inclusive employer. Our trusted employer database is just one of the ways an employer can improve their CSR offer by getting involved in the project.

Women’s Engagement

Tyne and Wear wide

Our dedicated Women’s Engagement Lead works across Tyne and Wear to achieve three key aims:

  • identify gaps in employment support from women in the region
  • engage with more women who may benefit from working with Moving On Tyne & Wear
  • work with local organisations and services who offer support tailored to women


Past, Regional Projects

Peer Research Project


MOTW recruited participants with histories of substance misuse to research the connection between addiction and unemployment. The report is now live and the work is being shared with local services.

Peer Support & Social Prescribing Project


The original project consisted of Mental Health Concern, HealthWORKS, and Newcastle United Foundation delivering a programme of peer mentoring to encourage participants to make lifestyle and behavioural changes which will improve health, wellbeing and employability. A toolkit has been produced which will be disseminated across the programme and partners.
