Lloyds Bank has provided Next Steps with funding over a period of three years to create our Increased Skills Scheme, the aim of this scheme is to provide volunteers with a portfolio of their skills and qualifications/courses attended. This scheme increases their chances getting back into work, whilst also learning new skills and improving their current skills as well.
“Before I came to volunteer I had no training certificates as I had worked on farms all my life. I now have many certificates and can cook and I have learned many skills. I feel happier in myself and I have so much more confidence.
