Breakthru Unemployment

What is the Breakthru Programme?

Our Breakthru Programme is aimed at young people 16–30 years of age in Shropshire who are Not in Education Employment or Training (NEET) or have a zero-hours contract or are in part-time employment and are in receipt of benefits (including PIP or UC).  

Through our Breakthru Programme there are 3 different ways that we support young people.

1. We identify passions, skills and aspirations and explore ways with young people to progress their careers.

2. We provide wellbeing support for young people. This includes resilience and confidence building through sessions with Lisa Avery who is a positive psychologist.

3. Supporting young people who are aspiring to create their own business, and we deliver this support through our ASYSTED Business Programme. This support can also include mentoring and financial support with running your own business. 

Start a business!

One aspect of Breakthru is our self-employment route-way. This part of the programme is designed for young people who want to start a business, which is called our ASYSTED Business programme.
