A new project has started in West Cornwall to support people who are not working and who have been adversely affected by the Covid-19 restrictions. Inside Out will reach out to people whose mental health and emotional wellbeing has taken a knock during the pandemic and help them to get back on track and into training and work.

Led by local charity CLEAR, alongside Rebuild Southwest, Inside Out will provide a mix of online (Inside) and community based (Out) support and activities to help people feel safe about reconnecting with their community, rebuild confidence, motivation and emotional resilience, and provide routes into work and training. It is unique in that it combines trauma-informed therapeutic approaches with practical, enjoyable, community-based activities. The CHAOS Group will also support the project through vocational training and volunteer placements.

Inside Out is funded by the European Social Fund (through Community Led Local Development managed by Cornwall Development Company), Cornwall Council and the project partners themselves.

Inside Out values the jobs that are of increasing importance to us all, such as care, cleaning services and construction, providing skills training and supported routeways to work with real living-wage employers.

If you or your friends or family would like to join the project call 07737128375 or email insideout@clearsupport.net
