STAY IN TOUCH AT ARUNDEL LIBRARY
Do you know someone who could benefit from more communication?
Contact and communication with the outside world is important and social media means you can do this from the comfort of your own home. This is why we set up our Stay In Touch Using… courses; to connect those unable to do so on their own in the fight against loneliness.

These courses will set up participants with a safe and secure account from which they will learn to send a messages, record and send an audio and video messages, and participate in group chat, great for families, interest groups, friendship groups and events!

GETTING PEOPLE CLOSER TO EMPLOYMENT
70% of our ‘All About Me’ participants have moved closer or into work, against a 40% target!
We have had a successful first year of delivering the ‘All About Me’ programme, beating our target of 40% of participants have moving closer or into work with a rate of 70%. The programme, which still has spaces available, breaks down barriers to employment through 1:1 coaching and workshops with participants, and helps to break down a wide range of obstacles.

But the ‘All About Me’ programme is not just about exits into employment. It is all about the journey. Every participant has broken down some or all of their barriers, even if they are not closer to employment. Ellis is now in employment but look at her journey throughout the project:
