New Opportunities

The New Opportunities project aims to improve the lives for those furthest from the job market.  Through unique training modules, participants gain access to a wide range of work-related learning to improve their skills and confidence. Managed by Wales Council for Voluntary Association’s Active Inclusion fund, which is supported by funding from the European Social Fund, New Opportunities aims to improve the experience of people with disabilities and/or disadvantages through employment-focused volunteering and work experiences.

Participants will have access to a range of work-related training including:

  • travel training
  • customer care
  • work awareness
  • food safety
  • environmental awareness
  • health and safety
