Walsall Bridges - UK-SPF
We are now pleased to be able to say that our services have extended into Walsall to deliver the UK-SPF project Bridges with Steps to Work and other partners.
JST's Jo, will offer and provide a package of bespoke and intensive 1-1 and group activity interventions with partner agencies to ensure that economically inactive people in Walsall aged 16+ are given the greatest opportunity to increase their life chances and achieve their potential.
JST has significant experience of supporting people with a range of inspirational engagement and support with a dedicated team who consistently go the “extra mile” for people many who have fallen through societies gaps.
JST see every person as unique & treat everyone with the dignity and respect that they deserve. We make every meeting count and engender confidence and trust in people quickly.
This method is incredibly invaluable at initial contact/assessment stage to build relationships and trust, we use motivational techniques and utilise various “hooks” to engage people with a range of options and activities which help support people with barriers to their well-being and employment and training.
JST believes that it is imperative to look at everyone on their own merits and meet them at whatever stage of development they are currently at, in order to ensure the building blocks are in place to develop and create a personal progressive and mutually agreed assessment plan which meets the individual's requirements and empowers them to fulfil their objectives.
JST has 10+ years’ experience of supporting people through a range of inspirational support and an unrivalled staff team that consistently go the “extra mile” for people in communities who have often felt ignored, pushed out and alone in society.
