Network Personnel GROW Programme

Our GROW Partnership programme aims to achieve the following for our participants through a suite of holistic interventions:

  • Improve life chances through basic and life skills 
  • Engage with local services and mainstream provision
  • Overcome barriers to work

GROW will provide a ‘one-stop-shop’ to address/remove health, wellbeing and other significant barriers to sustainable employment, in a regionally sensitive manner. It will provide ‘small steps’ and ‘manageable’ holistic activities, rather than daunting ‘fast-track to work’ approaches to its target cohorts.
