LU collab lockup_V3_CB

Exploring Volunteering Hull (EV) aims to support beneficiaries into employment or further learning by providing diverse work experience and/or volunteering opportunities. It is funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF). EV is aimed at economically inactive adults and young people (aged 16+) living in Hull. As with our other UKSPF programmes, EV provides an individualised support package, including, personal development, social activities, employability skills, volunteering, work experience, ICT, literacy and numeracy support, occupational specific qualifications or units, and job search. Each beneficiary receives support from a named keyworker and a personalised programme that meets their needs. The service is delivered by 9 partner organisations across the city of Hull to maximise access and it is free of charge for the beneficiary. Although there is no set time limit for support on the programme, most beneficiaries are expected to complete and/or progress within 4-6 months.
