"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.
