Livability UCan is helping people to pursue vocational paths, enjoy new skills and access new employment opportunities.

WISE Ability and Livability are delivering UCan, a project which is part funded by the European Social Fund and the Big Lottery Fund through Building Better Opportunities in Dorset.

We are supporting people who live in Poole or Purbeck (25 years+) that are the furthest away from being ready to work. This might be due to where people live and feeling cut off from opportunities, personal circumstances, disability or any other barriers preventing people from accessing work.

Participants will be connected with a worker who will support them every step of the way to help people reach their goals. Each person will receive a tailored package of support, dependent on the individual’s needs. This could include  volunteering, help with confidence building or transport support for those that live in a rurally isolated area.

Livability UCan can help by:

  • Designing a personalised plan towards fulfilling health, wellbeing and employment goals
  • Accessing training opportunities and helping to gain qualifications
  • Developing skills and confidence
  • Offering short or long term one to one support
  • Supporting with searching and applying for jobs
  • Improving emotional, mental and physical health and help people to realise their potential

Together, we can break down barriers and help you get where you want to be.
