Celebrating ATI’s Accomplishments!

Celebrating ATI’s Accomplishments!

 

Most of you will remember in April when we bid a final farewell to Action Towards Inclusion and planted (both literal and figurative) seeds for future projects.

Since then, we’ve seen a few buds, launched RISE, Multiply has more or less entered year two of delivery, TAW has come to a close, and ATI’s delivery numbers have finally been crunched by the Lottery.

And… we are ecstatic to announce that our ATI partnership has over-delivered on almost every single one of our targets across York, North and East Yorkshire spanning from 2017-2023!

Behind every number is an individual whose life has been changed from the support they received through our incredibly committed team of Keyworkers and Intervention Partners. From employment advice, to counselling, wellbeing, debt, and housing support (to name just a few elements of the available support) ATI’s holistic, person-centred approach has meant that our partnership has been able to create real, sustainable change across a range of communities.

We’ve supported carers, single-parents, refugees, the neurodiverse, people with disabilities, people struggling with their mental health, the over 50s, and generally those experiencing challenging circumstances in their lives, and it’s incredibly rewarding to see how the final figures compare to our initial targets.

We’ve seen people move into jobs they love (including a few former participants turned keyworkers on the project!), begin courses in a variety of subjects and specialisms after experiencing challenges in school and educational settings, and begin looking for work after years of fear and health problems.

Action Towards Inclusion is the programme that just keeps on giving- and we couldn’t wait for another excuse to celebrate the partnership’s achievements with you!

Let’s take a closer look at the lives the partnership helped to change…
