Step Forward Tees Valley is a project to help people who are unemployed or economically inactive and have two or more barriers to work.
One of the ways that we help people overcome these barriers and move nearer to employment is by helping them to find fulfilling volunteer opportunities. However, for those who do not feel able to commit to a regular role we offer Community Heroes. These are one-off events where a group comes together to perform a task within the community. For example we have:
- Painted a community centre meeting room
- Litter picked on the beach
- Acted as stewards at the Living with Cancer event
- Cooked meals for the homeless
We are now looking for new opportunities for our Community Heroes. If you know of anything we can do to help you, or an organisation you know, then please get in touch with Ruth at MVDA on 07487 265982.
