Members of the GEM Participants' Council recently visited the Houses of Parliament, allowing them to learn how British Parliament works and help them build their skill set and knowledge as a council member.
The Going the Extra Mile (GEM) Project is committed to help move people closer towards education, training, volunteering or work, including self-employment.
This programme will reconnect people with their local services through their communities and ultimately help them achieve their desired outcome, whether through a working or educational related route. The GEM Project understands that everyone is unique, with different needs and requirements, impacting on their step into the world of employment, education or training.
The GEM Project is jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund.
