Opportunity and Change is a support programme for people with multiple and complex needs, often helping them to find employment.

We are part of a group of several partners across the D2N2 area (Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire) who deliver this programme. The project consists of one-caseworker, one administrator and some ESOL provision. 

The aim of the programme is to support people who are

  • Homeless or vulnerable in their housing
  • Misusing substances
  • Experiencing domestic abuse
  • Current or ex-offenders

We help them to become more socially and economically included through providing them with better access to education, training and employment.

Opportunity and Change is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery, through the Big Lottery Fund.
