Overview

Targeted life support and coaching.

What we do

relationship where we aim to walk with people over a period of time, supporting and encouraging them at a time of transition.

For some, this may move into coaching, improving self-awareness and helping individuals set realistic personal goals in order to improve behaviour or performance.

It is hoped that through this holistic process we recognise that to genuinely and authentically see people move on in their lives, we need to offer not just ongoing support, but progressive support.

We recognise the value of friendship in enabling people to improve their self-awareness, gain a desire to change and take action to develop personally.

We know that practical needs will need to be met to achieve progression and personal development of lasting impact, so we are committed to seeking resolution for people and will refer to other support services where needed.

Ultimately this is about seeing people move and positively progress with their lives and fulfilling their potential. At whatever point people engage with the Brierley Hill Project we want to show dignity, respect and support them to move forward and knowing they are valued and accepted for who they are and not defined by their circumstances or past.
