        The project supports people aged 25+ who
are less likely to gain employment due to homelessness, long-term unemployment, living with disabilities and health conditions, or drug and alcohol dependency. Support is also provided to people who are under-represented in the labour market.
The aim is to tackle the barriers that prevent people from accessing support with more opportunities for education and training, improved health and wellbeing services, better financial help and new programmes to build people’s confidence.
        Motiv8 is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
It is being delivered by five housing providers working across Greater Manchester.
The team based at Wythenshawe Community Housing Group is providing support for people across Manchester.
