Welcome to #Focus5

The #Focus5 project provides bespoke support to young people aged 15-18 across the South West who are unemployed or out of education but who demonstrate a genuine desire to change their lives for the better.

  Funded by the European Social Fund and Big Lottery Fund, we help young people take steps back into education, employment or training. We also encourage development of the '5' key skills identified by employers as being gateways to employment: Communication, Customer service, Organisation, Problem solving, Teamwork.

#Focus5 is creating a lasting positive effect on young people, raising confidence, developing aspirations, challenging perceptions and focusing on achievements, no matter how small.
