Helping you to achieve your potential and secure sustained employment

The programme is no longer taking referrals however, it continues to work with participants until as late as 2023 for those who commenced work.

We're working with unemployed people across Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens, Wirral and Halton, delivering 1-2-1 support that gives them the skills they need to get into work.

It's not just about training and qualifications, but looking at the bigger picture to ensure that people have the confidence, motivation and the resilience needed to get and keep a job – and, ultimately, to progress in that job.

Positive Directions will make sure that you have the right support and can develop the right skills to give you the best possible chance of getting a job and building a career.

It’s about much more than that though. We will:

  • Give you one-to-one personalised support through a named key worker
  • Help with your health and wellbeing
  • Support you to build your confidence, motivation and resilience
  •  Ensure that you can learn and develop a range of useful skills through CV creation, work placements and more

What is the aim of Positive Directions?

Our aim is to help you get and keep a job. We understand that it’s not that simple, so we will build a personalised plan that’s right for you. That means that you’re working on all the things that have stopped you from getting a job. If you live in Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens, the Wirral or Halton and would like to find out more, get in touch today using the contact details below.

What can you expect from us?

We will listen to you, support you and treat you with respect. We will inspire you to achieve your goals, while ensuring you have the right specialist support to give you the best chance of achieving your potential.

What do we expect from you?

We need you to keep your appointments with us, and to let us know as soon as possible if you have a problem with keeping an appointment. We need you to be honest with us, whether that’s telling us about changes in your situation, if there’s part of the programme that isn’t working for you, or if there’s something we can do better.

What is the Growth Company?

What is the European Social Fund?

The ESF is one of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF), which are dedicated to improving social cohesion and economic well-being across the regions of the Union.  The particular aim of ESF spending is to support the creation of more and better jobs in the EU, which it does by co-funding national, regional and local projects that improve the levels of employment, the quality of jobs, and the inclusiveness of the labour market in the member states and their regions.
