A series of free events aimed at supporting people who face multiple and complex barriers to gaining employment is being planned.

In April two ‘Get Wild’ days will be held at Green Heart Den in Barrow.

Those taking part will be able to decorate a bug hotel and plant their own seeds.

The events are being run by the Building Better Opportunities Getting Cumbria to Work (BBO GCtW) project in collaboration with Marsh Street Arches and Garden Community Interest Company, which looks after Green Heart Den.

Natalia Wealleans-Turner, project manager for BBO GCtW said the aim was to support current BBO GCtW participants to reintegrate with the wider world and people in a similar situation.

In July and September two ‘Nature Arts & Crafts’ events will be held.

In August ‘Join the Circus’ sessions will take place at the same venue, where people will be able to join in fun activities and decorate a pebble or circus mask.

Invitations will be sent to existing participants. Anyone else interested in learning more about the BBO GCtW project who would like to attend can contact Sam Davidson on 01229 829832 or by email: sdavidson@thewell2.co.uk
