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.
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.
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.
This project worked with over 50s in South Tyneside through group activities. This South Tyneside innovation project facilitated sessions such a ‘Gym Buddies’ and ‘Brain Gym’ where people work on their physical and mental health. Participants can still access some of these sessions.
