THOMAS  is a delivery partner in the Changing Futures project in Lancashire which is part of the nationwide Building Better Opportunities scheme which brings together funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) to help tackle the poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in England.

Changing Futures supports people who are currently unemployed or economically inactive and are experiencing multiple and complex barriers to finding work to help improve their skills and employability.

The project aims to transform the futures of people of all ages (over 15) who have issues in their lives that are getting in the way of them finding employment or participating in training or education. It will focus on participants with mental or physical health difficulties, who are homeless, have disabilities or may be full-time carers.
