Get Ahead


Introduction to Service

Get Ahead provides employment-related activities to people experiencing challenging barriers to the labour market, people who are struggling to find work and claiming out-of-work benefits or claiming other benefits that would classify them as economically inactive, or those who are between jobs and not claiming any benefit.

We are funded by The European Social Fund and North of Tyne Combined Authority to support people with barriers to employment.
