Welcome to Moving On Tyne & Wear

We’re a local employability programme who help people in Tyne and Wear who are unemployed and have a health barrier, disability, additional learning need or autism get into employment, training or volunteering.

If you live in Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, North Tyneside or South Tyneside you could be eligible for free one-to-one employment support.  Get in touch with the team today by completing our online form or give us a call on 0191 217 3206.

 

What We Do

Our team of experienced Navigators work with people on an individual basis to give them the bespoke support and advice they need in order to meet their personal employment-related goals. They’re supported and encouraged to access the help needed to address their physical or mental health issues, boosting self-esteem and allowing them to enter volunteering, job or training opportunities with increased confidence. Each participant journey is different, and we’re here to help in whatever way we can.
