Towards Work Building Better Opportunities

The Groundwork Greater Nottingham Towards Work project is part of the national Building Better Opportunities Programme.

Jointly funded by the Big Lottery Fund & the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership’s European Social Fund allocation; the programme is delivered throughout Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, Derby and Derbyshire by a partnership of local organisations who specialise in supporting people into work.

We aim to support with those first vital steps towards gaining employment through a personalised service and support to overcome barriers an individual may face.


We will;

Support people to overcome personal barriers to employment and training, by providing an all-inclusive package of support to those most at risk of social exclusion.

Provide an In-Work Support service to ensure employment once obtained is sustained

Provide a person-centred, tailored service particularly for;

  • People out of work or economically inactive
  • People aged over 50
  • Young people not in education, employment or training
  • Women returning to work or who have never worked

Offer specialist support from our partnering BAME organisations, mental health and disability specialists for those in need of additional provisions.


Towards Work offers bespoke, personalised and tailored solutions to support an individual's journey to personal progression and employment. Linking individuals with specialist local support and continued In-Work services resulting in job retention.
