Barnardo’s Fit For Work is a programme funded by CashBack For Communities and is aimed for young people aged 15-24 who are:

  • Living in areas of deprivation
  • Unemployed, not in education or training
  • At risk of being involved in antisocial
    behaviour, offending/re-offending

Fit for Work supports young people to take their first steps towards employability. It is a very flexible programme that aims to support young people to work in a group, develop their skills and gain better routines.  These sessions are delivered from our premises twice per week for 2 hour sessions. We are also offering 1:1 support prior to starting on Fit for Work to encourage engagement and provide additional support where required. Young people may also be entitled to £20 per week if they participate in the course.

The 8 week interactive employability programme will consist of:

  • Budgeting skills
  • Health and Wellbeing activities such as Foot Golf, Health Walks, Transition Extreme etc.
  • Volunteering
  • Qualification
  • Employability

Here's something you should know

Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.
