East Lancashire Deaf Society is a delivery partner in one of Lancashire’s Building Better Opportunities (BBO) projects. This are part of the nationwide Building Better Opportunities scheme which brings together funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) to help tackle the poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in England.

The Changing Futures project is focussed on supporting individuals who face multiple and complex barriers to employment. All participants are unemployed or economically inactive and are at high risk of social exclusion, such as people from BAME communities, people with physical or mental health problems and people with learning difficulties.

The Changing Futures model prioritises the holistic needs of the individual. Using an asset based approach, participants are supported through Transformational Coaching to understand their abilities, skills and interests and identify ways to address their multiple barriers to economic activity.

The Changing Futures model prioritises the holistic needs of the individual and uses Transformational Coaching to understand each individual’s abilities, skills and interests and identify ways to address their multiple barriers to economic activity.
