The Building Futures programme is focussed on changing the lives of adults and young people across Buckinghamshire and is part of the Building Better Opportunities programme funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Since your help I've really started actually getting better and I wanted to thank you so much. I know I can keep improving and it all started with your help! Kindest regards and endless thanks.

What it is

Adviza has brought together five partners within Buckinghamshire to support at least 400 people over the next two-and-a-half years to move them closer to learning or work. 

The key elements include:

  • A personalised action plan and support package based on their needs
  • Dedicated support from a keyworker throughout their action plan
  • A range of activities to build confidence, skills and motivation to sustain learning or work with training
  • Employability support including CV writing, job applications and interview/presentation skills
  • Support for improving English language skills (where required) and breaking down cultural barriers to entering work and learning
  • Access to work and volunteering opportunities
  • Advice on benefits and financial management and childcare support.

Who it's for

The project has a particular focus on:

  • People who are long-term unemployed and from workless households and families
  • People aged over 50 who are long-term unemployed or have been made redundant
  • People with learning difficulties, disabilities or long-term physical or mental health issues
  • Disengaged NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) young people and those at risk of becoming NEET, aged 15-25
  • Black minority and minority ethnic community.
