Take a look at our Ignite Service
Our Ignite Programme focuses on supporting people to find greater self-belief, break free from benefit support, get back in to work and live life. Ignite offer a range of workshops for people to choose from, which are all tailored to build someone’s self-esteem and confidence, and to support people to achieve their goals.
Ignite’s workshops are delivered in relaxed and friendly group settings. There is also the opportunity for people to take advantage of one-to-one sessions with our Ignite Development Coaches.
How can Ignite help me?
