What is Accelerate?

Accelerate is a Building Better Opportunities Project funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

Accelerate is a free employment support service that can build your confidence, give you training, improve your skills and provide valuable work experience – all geared towards helping you get a job that suits you. Our support is tailored to your goals, your interests and your needs. We work closely with you every step of the way on your journey into work.

If you are unable to look for work at the moment due to health, parenting or other responsibilities, Accelerate can still help you to build your skills, confidence and support you with gaining qualifications, taking courses and becoming work ready for the future.

We specialise in supporting people who would like to work but for various reasons find it hard to get a job and enjoy all the benefits that employment brings. We offer practical help to deal with problems that have been holding you back including support with budgeting and saving money as well as covering the costs of childcare, Internet costs whilst taking our courses and subsidised travel while you’re accessing our service.

If you would like to know more about Accelerate and how we can support you, contact our Journey Guide Emma at 07709796149 or email us at
