Moving On Tyne & Wear

Gateshead project

If you’re a Gateshead resident who is unemployed due to physical or mental health issues, we can help you move forward and get closer to work.

Our Gateshead Navigators help their participants on a one-to-one basis to develop plans for managing their health, building confidence, and taking any appropriate steps to get closer to work.

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 Gateshead (or anywhere in Tyne and Wear)?
  • Are you aged 18 and over, and eligible to work in the UK?
  • Are you unemployed?
  • Is a physical or mental health issue stopping you from finding work?
  • Are you worried that you can’t learn new skills?
  • Do you need help with job applications, your CV writing, or general confidence?

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.

  • Dedicated Navigator for each participant
  • Regular meetings which fit your needs and schedule
  • Help to access community organisations and groups
  • Confidence building and social skills development
