We are proud to be a partner of Who Dares Works, a partnership of organisations working together to help individuals in West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to reconnect with education, training and employment.
Who Dares Works is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund and led by Active Plus. It has secured a further £3.3million of funding to support the project to continue until December 2021.
At the heart of the project is the Active Plus course which is typically where the participant starts on the project. The course has been designed to build confidence, motivation and self-belief to enable participants to move forward. Alongside attending the course, participants will work with their mentor to determine their long term goal(s) and achieve them by tapping in to a range of specialist support and a host of work-related activities delivered by the project partners, from volunteering to community projects, taster days to work experience and everything in between.
To be eligible for the project, participants must be 18 or over, living in West Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly and be unemployed.
