People Who Care’s Level Up program focuses on supporting people who have been long term unemployed and who may face a range of barriers preventing them from accessing the workforce.
These projects are fun and aim to keep people engaged in activities that develop skills, build self esteem and focus on addressing barriers that are obstacles in preventing people from living the life they desire.
