Working with over 250 beneficiaries a year developmentplus runs several projects including STEPS, a one-to-one coaching and mentoring programme; Bridging the Gap, a Reducing Reoffending Project; Better Together, a collaboration project, a Neighbourhood Working project; The Pitch, a men’s suicide prevention group; and our homelessness advocacy support project “Project Compass”. Our projects are supported by a team of dedicated development workers who bring an array of skills to their roles and are all passionate about supporting people from all backgrounds in moving forward with their lives.
developmentplus has 24 years’ experience of working alongside disadvantaged and vulnerable people to help them identify issues which have a detrimental effect on their lives and then to develop solutions focussed pathways for moving forwards. We work alongside people in their community, facilitating their involvement in decisions that affect their lives, supporting them to identify and develop initiatives that they feel will improve their quality of life.
In most recent years, our core delivery has been based around 1-1 coaching and mentoring programmes as outlined above working with beneficiaries from a broad background including individuals with poor mental health, ex-offenders, individuals furthest from the employment market and rough sleepers.
