As we near the end of 2020, this year has definitely been a challenging and uncertain time. Despite this, we have continued to support our GEMs as much as possible throughout the pandemic with our #GEMonline timetable.
The Going the Extra Mile (GEM) Project is committed to helping people overcome challenges to employment and move them closer towards or into 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 National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.
