Moving On Tyne & Wear

Our projects

Employer Engagement

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 and learn about health in the workplace. Our trusted employer database is just one of the ways an employer can improve their CSR offer by getting involved in the project. Visit the employer engagement area of the website for more information.

Innovation Projects

Alongside working with people across Tyne & Wear, we also offer five innovation projects which work to address specific needs of the people we work with.

Please visit the pages below to find out more about what our innovation projects have to offer:

Pathways Project

Tyne and Wear wide

Pathways 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.

Long-Term Condition Project

South Tyneside

This project brings together over 50s in South Tyneside through group activities. The groups aim to bring people together to support each other and take part in sessions such a ‘Gym Buddies’ and ‘Brain Gym’ where people work on their physical and mental health.

Peer Research Project

Gateshead

We recruited participants who had a history of substance misuse to research the connecting between addition and unemployment. We have employed three of these researchers to complete a formal report which will be used to inform local services. News of this is due in early 2019.

Peer Support Project

Newcastle

The Newcastle project trains local participants to learn peer support techniques and help encourage others. These skills help build people’s confidence and mental health while developing CV skills.

STEM Innovation Project

North Tyneside

Through volunteering opportunities, this project helps introduce people in North Tyneside to the world of STEM.

Social Enterprise

For people on the programme who are interested in pursuing self-employment opportunities, our Social Enterprise project can help. Come together with like-minded individuals and access the skills you need to work for yourself.
