The GREAT Project

The Getting Ready for Employment and Training (GREAT) Project is a free service designed to give members of families, who are not currently employed, the support they need to find work or training opportunities. The GREAT Project is a partnership of various organisations that provide individuals with a variety of interactive sessions and workshops that focus on different skills needed for the working environment. Ultimately, the hope is that by building people’s skills and confidence, they will reach a point where they feel ready to find work or training.

Optima’s role within the project is to provide health and wellbeing support through one-to-one and group sessions, enabling people to overcome their health barriers and move into work or training.
