Building Better Opportunities

Barnsley College is working in partnership with South Yorkshire Housing Association on a project called Building Better Opportunities.

Building Better Opportunities – Sheffield City Region (BBO SCR) is an integrated, person centred service for people with physical and mental health conditions, learning disabilities and complex needs. It’s based on Individual Placement Support, a “place then train” approach that’s shown to be twice as effective as traditional approaches.

The BBO SCR partnership will support 642 adults over 2 years to find competitive employment and training opportunities. BBO SCR has received £2.7 million of funding from the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England.

Our dedicated Work and Enterprise Coach will be able to advise and support clients on a wide range of issues, breaking down any barriers that may prevent someone getting into work and sustaining employment.
