Laughter, tears and cake filled Kingsholm last week, as we joined together to celebrate the last six years of GEM with a special showcase; The GEM Journey.
Over the last six years The Going the Extra Mile (GEM) Project has been committed to helping people overcome challenges to employment and move them closer towards or into work, including self-employment.
This programme reconnected people with their local services through their communities and ultimately helped them to achieve their desired outcome, whether through a working or educational related route. The GEM Project understood that everyone is unique, with different needs and requirements, impacting on their steps into the world of employment, education or training.
The GEM Project is no longer taking referrals for this programme as the project is due to end in December 2022 after reaching the end of its funding.
The GEM Project is jointly funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.
Please note that referrals to the GEM Project ended on 30th September 2022.
