JST commenced delivery of the building better opportunities project in 2016 working closely with the lead organisation Steps To Work and a host of other partners.
From 2016-2019 we have supported 150 people aged 25+ with long term barriers into leading better lives of which approximately 41 of these have entered training, education, paid work and started job searching.
JST works across the Black Country with those aged 25+ furthest away from employment, training and education. The work we do includes support with housing, health , utility bill payment plans and help to source and start employment, training and education. JST addresses barriers and challenges such as but not limited to low confidence, self esteem, mental health struggles, lack of IT skills, lack of work experience and qualifications and a raft of other support needs.
