Employment Support

Work plays an essential role in our lives, not just financially, but psychologically too. Purpose, learning, friendships, achievement, positive habits all shape how we feel and who we become. Finding work is vital, yet can be a barrier for many. It is a fact that the longer a person is unemployed the lower the motivation to find work becomes. With decreasing confidence, job search and interviews become disheartening, and even a daunting task often leading to anxiety issues. A loss of purpose and daily structure can also cause havoc on our mental health.

At Motivated Minds, we understand the multiple psychological barriers faced, and we are passionate about supporting people on a journey to realise and believe in their own potential, ensuring they become ready to undertake paid employment.  We work with colleges, Youth Services and the Department of Work and Pensions, as well as their providers to offer two bespokeroutes, firstly our Community Motivator programme, and our short courses and training programmes. Which ever route, we facilitate essential life tools to ensure our customers are happy and reaching their full potential. 

Community Motivators

Our Community Motivator programme gives people the opportunity to learn key transferable skills for both life and employment. Working alongside our team members, each person has their own responsibilities and tasks to complete. Many identify areas they would like to support within our organisation, such as our retail area, the wellness cafe, administration, cleaning, finance, fundraising, stock maintenance and rotation, or supporting our physical activity programmes.

Our aim is to create an environment and role that they love doing, which enhances their wellbeing and paves the way to achievement and sustainable employment. 

Foundation 4 the Future

For those that have settled into the Community Motivator programme, or for those that would rather learn through workshop based activities we offer a selection of short courses (from half day +) and accredited training which includes; 

  • Level 1 Mental Health Awareness (NCFE accredited)

 "I would like to thank you for the help and support given to my son whilst on your programme. During the time he has spent with you I feel he has gained confidence and learnt new skills. The trip you took him on Tuesday (Stubbers Activity Centre) found him discovering that he could achieve things he'd never thought he could and felt very proud of himself. I am also happy he has made new friends. I feel this course has been very positive for him".
