Helping people back to work in Newcastle and North Tyneside

Today, The Wise Group, a renowned social enterprise dedicated to dismantling barriers via relational mentoring, hosted a significant event in Newcastle. Jamie Driscoll, the North of Tyne Mayor, emphasised the transformative potential of this groundbreaking service, highlighting its local, sustainable nature. He underscored its dedication to delivering comprehensive, evidence-based support to residents of Newcastle and North Tyneside. 

It’s been estimated via Social Return on Investment metrics that this £1.6 million initiative could inject over £10 million into local communities, changing the trajectory of countless lives. The service’s core strength lies in fostering a unique one-on-one bond between a seasoned mentor and their mentee, a relationship that can span several months. By addressing a broad spectrum of 15 vital needs, from housing and health to wellbeing and heating, it aims to concurrently overcome multiple challenges, laying down the essential groundwork for employment. 

This endeavor receives financial backing from the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, with the North of Tyne Combined Authority taking the helm.
