What is Building Better Opportunities?


The Building Better Opportunities programme is funded by Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) who are co-investing in local projects tackling the root causes of worklessness, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth.


Bridges is one of four projects within this programme across the Black Country and will help people across Walsall, Wolverhampton, Dudley and Sandwell move into or closer to employment by developing their skills and confidence.


Bridges is managed by the Steps to Work in partnership with organisations across the Black Country such as including Bilston Resource Centre.
