Bridge: an exciting employability project for Northumberland
Bridge is an employability project which is all about getting the residents of Northumberland nearer to employment, through personalised support and reaching out to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. Bridge is an additional resource that will work in partnership with existing programmes and services and aims to compliment and work with existing services to co-ordinate provision and maximise the help we can provide. Our Stakeholder information leaflet will give you some more information, but please feel free to contact us.
Our dedicated website, www.bridgenorthumberland.org.uk is currently under development and we will share it with you when it goes live. In the meantime, we will continue to update you via this web page and through our regular newsletters, Facebook and Twitter pages.
