Bridges Project team go further with their helping hand support
Helping hand hampers have landed on the doorsteps of clients supported by Walsall College’s BBO Bridges project. The hampers filled with food and toiletries came from Steps to Work, who are managing the project partnership.
These were delivered to clients self-isolating as part of the Track and Trace system, shielding long-term or on low incomes due to the current climate.
Alison Davies, Project Mentor said: “The team is working hard to keep our clients moving forward throughout lockdown, whether it’s a friendly chat, an online personal development or employability workshop, updates on new job opportunities and courses, or advice about other issues and services.
“Thanks to Steps to Work, we’ve been pleased to take our support another step further. And in a way that shows we’re really thinking of them.”
BBO Bridges is a free project designed to support local unemployed people aged over 25, who need that extra bit of help to move forward in life because of a health condition, physical disability, learning support need or autism.
Participants are based in and around Walsall.
