Fleetwood Town Community Trust, Regenda homes and More positive together have collaborated on a Wyre wide programme to improve the employability prospects and the health and wellbeing of people across Wyre.

With a focus on unemployment and self-improvement the “Find your Future” programme is aimed at people between the ages of 16-65 who are facing multiple barriers to active participation.

The collaborative programme hopes to raise aspirations and enhance community participation by providing opportunities to learn employment skills and improve wellbeing through the “Find your Future” programme.

The programme which commenced on the 23rd January in Fleetwood for 10 weeks, will also target Thornton, Wyre and Garstang and finally back to Fleetwood. ‘Find you Future’ aims to deliver the year-long programme and actively work alongside our community to engage and promote the service to anyone who is eligible to participate.

Fleetwood Town Community Trust Employability coach Jamie Shields said “The programme has started really with 14 individuals enrolling on the programme and should produce a high percentage of self-employed outcomes and accredited training.”

Lisa Bennett, Regeneration and Employment Officer at Regenda said: “Working with wider partners and networks, people have the chance to learn new skills, have more doors open to them and the chance to develop their health, wellbeing, resilience and employment opportunities,”
