We managed to deliver and develop three projects related to training, development, networking and access for 350 older people, people with disabilities, women and asylum seeker, newly arrived people and young people. Activities and programs we developed incorporated mentoring programs as well. Many of the participants were able to gain jobs in Birmingham City Council, Police, Armed Forces, NHS, Social, Community and Youth work due to a positive attitude, confidence and encouragement. The Trust has delivered international exchange programmes, and participants were given support to travel abroad to have diverse cultural experiences. This also led to overseas befriending service being successfully developed.
