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.
