YSS , as core member of AIM partnership wins the national ESF Gender Equality leader award

AIM  partnership, of which YSS is a core member,  has won the national ESF Gender Equality Leader  award.

The Aim project within YSS  has given support to offenders  including helping get them into employment. Within the West Mercia area the particular innovation of this project is the focus on working with the family members of ex-offenders to provide a whole family approach rather than working with the individuals in isolation.

The judges recognised and were very impressed by the overall high quality of the application and were particularly impressed by the good practice undertaken by the project, for example:

·       promoting one-to-one support;

·       providing strong mentoring support;

·       practical help with childcare; and

·       a holistic approach to support – addressing issues within the family context, including helping family members.

The award ceremony was held on Thursday 15 November  at the Birmingham NEC (as part of the UK Skills Show) and Lorraine Preece YSS Director of Operations and Business Development  represented YSS at this event.
