More Positive Together (MPT) is a Lancashire wide project helping to improve the skills and employment prospects of residents in the county’s most deprived neighbourhoods.
MPT is led by Active Lancashire and brings together a partnership of Local Authorities, community partners and Social Housing providers with a combined portfolio of over 61,220 properties located across Lancashire.
The Project is building on a successful programme – ‘Positive Together’ and will work to engage a minimum of 2250 people aged 16+ up to December 2019.
The project aims to reach out to those furthest from the labour market, initially by providing intensive 1 to 1 support, then progressing to a wider engagement offer of sports, physical activity environmental, well-being and arts activities. There will also be opportunities to get involved in work experience, volunteering and training to help participants build resilience and be better prepared for getting back into work.
