Choices is a Community Interest Company dedicated to changing the lives of people in our community. We have a holistic approach in tackling social and economic issues that affect the well being of our clients.
Our volunteering opportunities lead to employment for people that statutory agencies may find difficult to work with.
We offer an effective method of life and career coaching as well as addressing housing, homelessness, benefits, employment and other social issues.
Young people, especially those at risk of exclusion from school, not in education, employment or training (NEET) are encouraged to attend our programmes that provide information, advice and guidance, life skills, confidence building sessions and mentoring as well as fun projects.
Choices is also part of the Online Centres Network made up of over 5,000 grassroots organisations Brought together by Good Things Foundation. We are all working to tackle digital and social exclusion by providing people with the skills and confidence they need to access digital technology.
"THE COMMUNITY IS OUR FOUNDATION
IT'S NEEDS ARE OUR AIMS
IT'S SUPPORT IS OUR MISSION
IT'S DEVELOPMENT IS OUR ACHIEVEMENT
IT'S EMPOWERMENT IS OUR SUCCESS"
