This year has been quite challenging but despite this, we’ve still continued to support people to achieve their career-based goals, including a number of GEM participants who have set up their own self-employed business.
The Going the Extra Mile (GEM) Project is committed to helping people overcome challenges to employment and move them closer towards or into work, including self-employment.
This programme will reconnect people with their local services through their communities and ultimately help them achieve their desired outcome, whether through a working or educational related route. The GEM Project understands that everyone is unique, with different needs and requirements, impacting on their step into the world of employment, education or training.
The GEM Project is jointly funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.
