Moving On Tyne & Wear

Gateshead project

About the Gateshead project

At Moving On Tyne & Wear we can support you to get back into training, volunteering, or employment if you are out of work due to complex health issues and other barriers such as debt, low skills, or housing issues.

We will help you to take advantage of existing voluntary or employment possibilities, and work with local employers to create new opportunities.

Who we work with

  • Are you a resident of Tyne and Wear?
  • Are you aged 18+ and eligible to work in the UK?
  • Have you been unemployed for a significant period of time?
  • Is a physical or mental health issue stopping you from finding work?
  • Are you worried that you can’t learn new skills?

If so, Moving On Tyne & Wear could be for you.

We are committed to helping you overcome the barriers that have prevented you from finding work or getting training before, and we will work hard to make sure you get the support you need as quickly as possible.

How we will work together

Once you are accepted onto the programme you will be assigned a Navigator, who will give you the one-to-one support you need. Your Navigator will be with you every step of the way, reviewing the help you need and ensuring you get the right support from a range of specialist services, helping you build on your strengths.

As you go through the programme, we will ask you to give us feedback so we can improve the service we offer. You could also train to become a peer mentor, offering support to other people in your situation.

The support we offer

As well as the core support provided by your Navigator, we also offer a range of specialist services designed to help you progress towards or into employment. This includes:

  • health and wellbeing
  • specialist employment skills, enterprise, and work experience
  • volunteering and work placements
  • disability support
  • access to training
  • support with job interviews and writing CVs
  • peer mentor programmes
  • self-employment advice
