A WIRRAL partnership aimed at helping vulnerable and hard-to-reach people into work has honoured its outstanding service users.
The group of exceptional achievers came from a variety of backgrounds and have worked hard to turn their lives around, overcoming multiple barriers within their lives.
They were supported by the ReachOut partnership which aims to overcome the challenges people face to find employment.
ReachOut partnership is formed by a number of Wirral-based agencies – Involve Northwest who deliver the programme, The Social Partnership, Advocacy in Wirral, Remploy, Wirral Change and Inclusive Access.
The awards celebration was held at Wallasey Town Hall and attended by a host of dignitaries, including the Mayor of Wirral Cllr Gerry Ellis.
Involve Northwest chief executive, Justine Molyneux said: “These awards are a fantastic opportunity to show everyone the great work and success stories that come through the ReachOut partnership.
“Bearing in mind the problems that these amazing individuals have had to overcome, to speak about their experiences in front of people is a real achievement.
“Awards were presented to service users who have overcome obstacles, achieved outstanding feats and turned their lives around.”
The organisation has helped more than 1,000 people into work and have set up more than 30 Job Clubs across the borough.
ReachOut will receive extra funding from Wirral council to run until August 31, 2013.
