Wise Steps is a project which helps people in Tyne and Wear to transform their lives with funding from the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.

Wise Steps is a partnership of local organisations (including Newcastle Futures Limited) lead by the Wise Group. Wise Steps aims to promote a focus on customer wellbeing, ensuring every person who enters the programme is given the care and attention they need. Through assessing each individual’s needs and how they’re impacted by the barriers they face, we can work together to remove the issues that block their entry to work.

With a focus on the customer at its core, Wise Steps takes a holistic approach to helping you to find your way into work. Understanding every person who joins the programme is unique and has a different set of challenges ahead of them which allows Wise Steps to gain an understanding of how they can help each person find sustained employment. Barriers can be anything from financial constraints through to a lack of training and/or experience. By assessing each individual’s needs, we’re able to make Wise Steps work for them.

Each customer will receive 1:1 tailored support from a Personal Coach to help them take positive first steps towards work. Together you can overcome any challenges you may face in finding a job.
