Opportunity and Change

The Opportunity and Change project is funded by The European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Opportunity and Change is part of Building Better Opportunities, a national programme funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund, for people with multiple and complex needs in and around the Chesterfield area.

We will work with you to resolve complex needs and become more socially and economically active. The programme can support you with homelessness, misusing substances or alcohol, mental health, domestic abuse, offending or general unemployment issues.

We will work with you to create a tailored package of support that will give you the knowledge and the confidence to make a real change in your life. This may include:

  • Coaching with your Navigator
  • Addressing and supporting mental health needs
  • Confidence building through practical support
  • Housing support
  • Relationship building
  • Education
  • Training
  • Employment
  • Recognising and support with financial barriers
  • Support in employment

We want to support you to achieve confidence and stability and to provide mainstream services that you may otherwise not have the confidence to approach. Please contact your local centre to find out more information or refer yourself or somebody else on to the programme or email cheryl.connelly@acorntraining.co.uk.
