Wise Steps

Our current Wise Steps programme is no longer accepting new registrations but we expect to open a second phase of this highly successful project, aimed at those with multiple and complex barriers preventing them getting into work, in June 2019. In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about the support available through the future programme please contact either of our Wise Steps Coaches, Tony or Annette.
