Who We Are
Your Helping Hands, Employment Training Network and Cultural Arts together form a close-knit partnership which delivers a range of projects and services for Wolverhampton’s communities. Although each entity provides its own specific ways of reaching out to these communities, when they come together their objectives combine with each other to ensure a well-rounded approach to community work.
By operating together in this way, we ensure that the people of Wolverhampton have quality access to services which: aid in moving individuals closer to the job market and social or financial security (Quad Bike Project, IT for Beginners and BME programme), raising awareness of our shared historical backgrounds (The Turban Project), providing care and assistance to hard-to-reach and at-risk individuals (Fuelling Winter, Reminiscing in Old English Gardens programmes and the Sweardown Project), and providing an inclusive space for communities to express their own, unique cultural identities.
These programmes have tackled a variety of issues which face many of Wolverhampton’s diverse communities in a multitude of ways, with special attention paid to the sensitive nature of these problems within each community.
