New Leaf Project
New Leaf means a fresh start for people in Cheshire
New Leaf is an innovative new project with ambitious aims to change the lives of people across Warrington.
Launched early October 2016 the scheme is led by Golden Gates Housing Trust (GGHT) and the Building Better Opportunities programme is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund. It will run until 2019.
New Leaf’s launch heralds the introduction of a wide range of opportunities and initiatives for residents, and will provide much needed help and support for people who have previously found securing and sustaining a job difficult.
It aims to support individuals with multiple & complex barriers to:
Move closer/into employment
Move out of poverty
Contribute to their local community & economy
Each individual will be referred to the programme and matched with a Mentor. An agreed action plan will then be created, to provide the support, training and interventions needed to move individuals towards their goals. As part of the programme, Citizens Advice Warrington provide money advice as well as help with benefits and budgeting for Warrington residents.
