We are currently delivering a unique and ground-breaking programme which uses positive psychology and behaviour change techniques to improve wellbeing and employability for long-term unemployed or economically inactive people who are facing barriers to employment. The course was developed in close collaboration with Bangor University’s School of Psychology.
The Boost! programme is designed to help participants:
- Believe in yourself
- Open up to new experiences
- Overcome barriers
- Stay positive
- Take care of yourself
Participants will be helped to develop skills and techniques for building resilience and motivation, and for setting and achieving personal goals.
Our participants said:
“There is no downside to the course – just do it!”
“Feel the fear and do it anyway. It can transform your life if you put the effort in.”
“The Boost! course has had a significant impact on my life and has instilled in me a definite ‘can-do’ attitude.”
“I have taken so much from this course, not least the motivation, enthusiasm and positivity to move forward. I now feel confident and empowered enough to change direction completely.”
Boost! is delivered over two days a week for six weeks. Future Boost! courses are planned for Conwy, Denbighshire and Gwynedd in 2017 and early 2018.
We currently receive European Social Funding through Welsh Government’s Innovation Fund.to deliver Boost! to Communities for Work participants – your Jobcentre Plus Work Coach can advise on how to register for Communities for Work.
