Walking for Purpose is back!

15 Jun

Walking for Purpose is back! 

After a successful pilot project in the Hillsborough and Longley areas of the city, Walking for Purpose is back, it will be bigger and better than before!  We are taking the project city wide and will be initially working in the Tinsley, Gleadless and City Centre, so look out for us.

Are you looking for work or know someone who is? Then we need you!

Walking for Purpose is a project that offers people who are looking for work the opportunity to join us on a gentle walk, get skills employers want, receive help into training and enjoy being active with a real purpose. We will meet you at a local venue where our friendly & approachable staff will walk with you to different workplaces or training providers where you will be able to:

  • Get hints and tips from local employers/training providers to make you more employable
  • Develop and enhance your skills and experiences – great for your CV or application writing!!

The new project will start in July in different areas of the city and we will be providing free travel passes for those attending, so please contact us on 0114 273 4266 or email us at walking4purpose@sheffield.gov.uk to find out more.

We are currently working with a variety of local & city wide organisation including Reach South Sheffield, Tinsley Forum and Zest. If any organisation or business would like to be involved in the project please get in touch via the information above
