Moving On Tyne & Wear

Sunderland project

About the Sunderland project

At Moving On Tyne & Wear, your Navigator will give you one-to-one support to overcome your health issues and any other barriers, with the aim of helping you into training, education, volunteering, employment, or self-employment.

We have dedicated business and employment coaches to help to access existing and new opportunities. Please get in touch if you think we might be able to support you.

Who we work with

  • Are you a resident of Sunderland?
  • Are you aged 18+?
  • Are you unemployed?
  • Do you have a physical or mental health issue?

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

Our Navigators can give support to help 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
