Support And Signposting at Gannow Community Centre, Burnley

Start 2018 with a purpose. Make this year more enjoyable, productive and reduce your stress levels and worries.

Has something held you back in 2017 from moving forward into education, training or paid employment or have you had difficulties overcoming barriers? The New Year is the perfect time to start being a new you. Follow through on your New Year’s resolutions and make a positive change in your life.

This New Year BPRCVS are introducing Support And Signposting, a free drop-in service at Gannow Community Centre, Burnley for people who have barriers preventing them from moving forward in their life. Support And Signposting is the helping hand that can make a genuine difference to your life.

Support And Signposting pairs you with an expert support advisor to help you to overcome barriers or complex needs that are preventing you from getting on with your life. The BPRCVS expert advisors will create a custom, personalised plan with you which will help to address your situation.

This brand new project can help overcome barriers such as housing issues, disability, and family troubles. Overcome alcohol and substance misuse issues, improve your health and wellbeing, and improve your welfare to enable you to move on in 2018.

If you’ve been out of work for a long time and have lost confidence or lack the necessary skills to search and apply for jobs come on down to Gannow Community Centre and let us help you. We can provide support for CV and cover letter writing, interview skills and job searching skills. Attend free confidence building workshops to get started on your journey to becoming a new you. If you’re not quite ready for work our expert advisors are incredibly knowledgeable about the voluntary opportunities that could help you rebuild confidence, develop skills and get a taste of working again, but without the commitments of paid employment.

Support And Signposting can also help with financial issues too including debt advice, debt management, and benefits support to help you break down the financial barriers that are holding you back.

BPRCVS’ expert advisors aim to help and support people to overcome barriers and move forwards into paid employment, volunteering, training or education. However if you are not looking for work or training and are not interested in volunteering we can still help you.

Whatever your barriers or complex needs we can help you to overcome them and put some purpose into your life so that you have a reason to live a fulfilled life. If we are unable to support you directly we will signpost you to the most appropriate service local to you using our extensive knowledge of support services and organisations.

Support And Signposting starts on Friday 12th January 2018 and is a completely free drop-in service every Friday between 1pm and 3pm at Gannow Community Centre, Adamson Street, Burnley, BB12 6RB. No appointments are necessary just drop-in and speak to one of our expert advisors.

Support And Signposting is a very relaxed drop-in service which is set in a comfortable lounge and we provide free tea, coffee and biscuits. So come on round for a free brew and no obligation chat with one of our expert advisors and see how BPRCVS can help and support you.

Everyone is welcome. No barrier or complex need is too big to overcome. Let us help you smash down the barriers in your life and start moving forward.
