Since it’s official launch in October 2016, the GEM Project currently has over 350 individuals signed up to the programme.

This new and unique programme aims to help those who are dealing with circumstances that are currently impacting on them entering or re-entering the working environment. Working with over 50 partners across Gloucestershire, the GEM Project will support people and help move them closer towards education, training, volunteering or work.

The project is designed to be tailored to each individual’s need and they will receive 1:1 support from a Navigator Developer, who will help and assist throughout the person’s entire GEM journey.

A large number of individuals have already completed their own personalised journey, which has resulted in seeing people gain qualifications, set up their own business and complete various training programmes, from retail to catering.

The GEM Project is jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund.
