Foundations For The Future

Foundations For The Future is a FREE 10-week course for people looking to overcome their personal barriers to employment.

Join us on a journey of self development and enjoy a mix of classroom based learning and practical hands on experience at our HAPPY Hub in Basildon, and build strong foundations for a successful future in your chosen career path. Following the completion of this course you will have the opportunity to enjoy a 3-week Community Action Project with exciting team building opportunities and progress through our Pathways Programme.

From catering, to retail, to horticulture, we have a pathway to suit everyone, and with Basildon, Billericay and Wickford CVS dropping in weekly, you'll also have regular access to professional support to find a volunteering experience within the community to support your learning and development to help prepare you for your future career.

 "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".
