About Achieve

Our Achieve pro­gramme is a part­ner­ship of 9 local deliv­ery organ­i­sa­tions across Brad­ford Dis­trict. We help peo­ple fac­ing multiple/complex bar­ri­ers who are far­thest from the job mar­ket to engage with Job Cen­tre Plus (JCP) pro­vi­sion. These bar­ri­ers include finan­cial wor­ries, health con­di­tions or drug and alco­hol addiction.

If the par­tic­i­pant is eli­gi­ble for sup­port with­in this pro­gramme, this refer­ral will be fol­lowed by a more detailed assess­ment by the deliv­ery partner.
