Exploring Opportunities is an employment and social inclusion programme aimed at improving the lives of unemployed and economically inactive people aged 25 and above, across North Lincolnshire, by increasing employability skills, self-confidence, local knowledge, community engagement, and personal resilience.

In addition to employability support, the programme provides one-to-one key workers, information and guidance, and high levels of support to address very specific barriers, for example, poor mental health, entrenched financial problems, and low functional skills.

This project is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
