Founded 1978

  • Mission statement

    Founded in Milton Keynes in 1978 we deliver:
    - 1-2-1 advice, guidance and information for those who need free confidential support (we are Matrix accredited)
    - Free training: from Basic IT and Job Search to Confidence Building and Interview Skills.
    - A credible assessment of people’s strengths, producing a report for clients to keep
    - Activity groups for women to increase wellbeing & develop a sense of community (Women without Boundaries) and to build their confidence to enable them to make the first steps into work,
    - A supportive, informal networking group for those who have, or would like to start, a small/micro business,
    - A Job Search group.
    We can work with groups of young people to develop practical skills and experience and also develop soft skills, such as negotiation and team work, which will enhance their chances in the job market.
    Further to our part in the NIACE Mid-life Career Review research project, where we worked with people to establish what support they needed to help them return to work, plan for a longer working life than originally anticipated and how they want to approach eventual retirement. We are now taking our learning, and the learning from the other organisations involved in the research, forward to help this older group.
