Building Better Opportunities Funding supports projects in England that tackle poverty and promote social inclusion. It is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.
One element of the BBO is STRIVE – (The Support and Transition Routes into Volunteering and Employment in Herts). ASCEND, as a BBO Partner, runs one of the STRIVE hubs at Step Up (39 Oxhey Drive, South Oxhey), currently running on a Wednesday. Our BBO Mentor Eileen, together with other ASCEND colleagues, supports people furthest from the job market. Click here to read a recent interview with our BBO Mentor Eileen.
