Support from the European Social Fund for new project

KeyRing has secured just under £20,000 funding from the European Social Fund.


The project will support people, particularly those with learning disabilities, in Oldham to get closer to the workplace.

Working Well 2019 recognised that people with learning disabilities find it difficult to get work in Oldham.

We will work with small groups of people to move them closer to the workplace by developing their skills and confidence. Each person will be supported by a volunteer mentor who will help them get the most from the course.

They will also be able to access some support with any practical issues that might get in the way of them working. We will adapt the project to suit the learner's needs.

The project is based on work completed by Catch 22. Catch 22 design and deliver public services that build resilience and aspiration in people and communities.

We will be looking for volunteers with experience of work to join the project. Please email enquiries@keyring.org for more information.

You can find out more about the work we already do in Oldham on our Oldham page.
