"Suddenly I can see a future"

 

Welcome to Positive People.

Positive People and Hopeful Families offers a lifeline to people who are not in work to help build confidence, skills and give a sense of hope for the future.

The projects give people the opportunity to get involved in local communities, meet new people and have fun through a range of activities.

When Nick came to Positive People sessions he was isolated and withdrawn. By week four of the course he was engaged, enthusiastic and his confidence had grown hugely. He has now secured his own flat and is working as a volunteer, we are so impressed that he has progressed so quickly.
