ESF – The First Steps Projects


The first steps programme offers a one to one service for those with disabilities looking to get into employment.   It focuses on barrier removal for those furthest from the jobs market including tackling social isolation, confidence building and initial work on employability. 


The service is normally a precursor to Stage 2 provision for EF programmes.


On First Steps you will:

gain more confidence
