Foundation 92 are delighted to announce the launch of a brand-new Community Employability programme, funded by seven housing associations across Salford.
Thanks to the support of Clarion Futures, ForHousing, Great Places, Irwell Valley Foundation, Onward Homes, Pendleton Together and Salix Homes, the Foundation can offer this development-focused programme.
The programme will be running in East Salford, Langworthy, Seedley, and Little Hulton – set out to help members of the community who are looking to gain valuable employment skills.
Over a six-month period, the programme is aiming to support 30 individuals with employment through the delivery of specialist mentoring and skill-based support classes.
Free of charge, the programme will be tailored to suit the needs of those taking part, in order to provide those individuals with the greatest chance of improving and thriving.
Head of Foundation 92 Tom Hutton said: “Foundation 92 would like to thank each partner who has contributed to this exciting and highly impactful project.
“Throughout the pandemic, many people have faced significant challenges associated with gaining employment.
“This programme will support individuals in a person-centred manner to develop the skills required to achieve their potential.”
A representative from the housing association partnership added: “Registered social landlords in Salford are committed to supporting their communities to lead healthy, positive and progressive lifestyles.
“Recognising the challenges faced by many in the community, closely linked to the pandemic, each partner is delighted to be contributing to what we believe will be a really exciting, beneficial and impactful programme.”
Everybody needs and deserves a home, but as housing associations we know that we need to go further that just providing bricks and mortar and support people in developing the skills and life-plans to fulfil their own ambitions.
It is more important than ever that we work together to achieve positive outcomes for our collective communities. This programme, as well as helping the individual clients, will provide a platform for further joint working.
“We’re delighted to work with Foundation 92 on this important project that will make a real difference to our residents and the wider Salford community.”
