Projects

Aside from the more job focused support you would expect from a charity such as Toucan we are able to offer our service user’s the opportunity to take part in projects that we run along side our main services.

These are run in order to give our service users the opportunities to gain experience and training in areas of their lives where they typically would not get the chance to. Many people, for a variety of reasons, may never have been in a position where they were aiming on gaining employment, and there would never have had the opportunities to learn the related everyday skills we so readily take for granted.

These projects allow us to be able to offer our service users the chance to learn those skills, such as fully supported work experience in preparation for the world of work. They also give them the opportunity to improve their confidence, time keeping and time management, the chance to get used to job routines that would come with finding a job, learn to build on their social skills and experience working in a team and likewise independently if they are able. They are then able to add these experiences on to their CV for potential future employers to see that they have put in the effort previous to applying for work.

We have a great track record of funding for side projects to run simultaneously with the rest of our service, our current projects include:
