Making a Difference

Building better opportunities

This project came to an end in March 2023.

This scheme was set up to help tackle the poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in Shropshire. It was run in conjunction with the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), and provided pre-employment support within Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.

What our participants said:

“I feel more confident now applying for courses, thanks for your help.”

“Genuinely brilliant! I wouldn’t be back in work if it wasn’t for them.”

“I am so much more confident now; I really want to look at starting my own business.”

“BBO is a brilliant way to help people; I found other avenues to achieve my goals.”

How can I find out more?

The BBO Progamme has now come to and end.
