Inspiring Connections boosts the careers of people experiencing barriers to meaningful work.

Inspiring Connections is a personal and professional development programme for people to gain the opportunities, support or momentum they need to take the next steps towards their career goals. It works by bringing people with barriers to work, Inspiring Connections Candidates, together with Advocates; a range of professionals and business owners motivated to support others to find fulfilling work. Candidates and Advocates participate in six group-based sessions together to empower Candidates and facilitate valuable new relationships.

The Programme

Your commitment

Both Candidates and Advocates commit to attending six 2-hour sessions, held using video conferencing software.

Our Values

This course has made me want to volunteer again as a mentor. A mixture of sharing my life experiences and our collective discussions made me feel that we collectively helped a group of wonderful candidates move forward with their aspirations.

Inspiring Connections Advocate
