“Before Bridge I was in a really dark place, I wouldn’t leave the house and I was depressed.  My depression would take over and I’d have no interest in anything.  Being on the Bridge Project has been life changing – if it hadn’t been for Bridge I wouldn’t be able to cope.”

An example of how we can help:

  • We will always try and work in the area of Northumberland that you live
  • Providing 1-2-1 support from a dedicated Bridge Worker
  • Carrying out a review of your finances to get on top of managing your money, help deal with any debt and make you become more independent
  • Providing you with clothing if required to attend interviews or specialist workwear to help you attending training courses and volunteer placements
  • Helping you to find learning and training opportunities such as; health and safety courses, food safety courses, CSCS (construction skills certification scheme), SIA security, English, Maths and computer skills to name a few…
  • Helping you to gain qualifications
  • Covering the cost of travel to appointments, training courses etc.
