Positive People Programme
About our Partner
We work with our lead partner, SEETEC-PLUSS, as a specialist service provider for the Positive People programme, to support over 1,000 out-of-work individuals across the South West by building their skills, confidence and motivation. This includes people with disabilities or mental health issues, ex-offenders, homeless people and people over 50.
The programme aims to benefit local communities by reducing poverty and anti-social behaviour. It will also contribute to the growth of the local economy with employers having access to a pool of people with the relevant skills to meet their needs.
Positive People is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund.
“We believe all are born with the potential to be creative, productive, happy and healthy. Our mission is to help millions build better lives by supporting thousands of Real Life Coaches using our unique “heart-based” approach.”
— Mark Griffiths, CEO of Real Life Coaching International
Work and Health Programme
SEETEC-PLUSS has also been awarded the contract with the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and we are delighted to be a part of their integration framework.
We are a specialist service provider for the programme and deliver our unique ‘Who Am I’ workshop to multiple small groups working in conjunction with all of the main partners for the work and health programme.
SEETEC-PLUSS expects that up to 85% of participants on the programme will have a health condition or disability, so they have developed a locally integrated supply chain of specialist providers to deliver innovative services to jobseekers across the entire Southern region. The programme supports people who have been registered unemployed for at least two years, and also supports those who face significant disadvantages including carers, homeless, ex-offenders, ex-forces, care leavers, refugees and people with a history of substance misuse.
