Get Socially Active

 

The Get Socially Active project aims to support people to identify and overcome barriers; build confidence; develop skills; access existing local learning and support services; get hands on experience and an all-important reference; reach your goals. Get Socially Active offers you a free and friendly one to one coaching support service, if you are thinking about or feeling pressured into finding work or entering into learning, but need help achieve your goals and ambitions.

Get Socially Active supports you through a personalised action plan which will include accessing confidence building and personal skills training, as well as work experience placements, attending and helping to set up community groups, leading to accredited training and employment opportunities. The project is aimed at people aged 19 to 50+, who are not working for a variety of reasons, such as carer responsibilities, managing a disability or long term illness, whether registered unemployed or not, who need help to make positive changes in their lives.

Donate your unwanted bike to Recycle!

What is Recycle?
Recycle is a community project which provides an environmentally friendly means of recycling unwanted bikes. If you donate your old bicycle to the project, our service team will refurbish it with the support of volunteers or local people wanting to gain work experience. The project provides a hands on training opportunity to gain new skills and experience. The bicycles are then sold and all money made reinvested back into the Recycle project. Recycle is part of the Get Socially Active project.

By donating your old bike you know your once loved bicycle will be going to a good new home; potential landfill is reduced and an opportunity is provided for a local person to gain hands on practical refurbishment experience.

How to join the project:
The project is aimed at supporting people who live in Lewes, Newhaven, Peacehaven, Seaford and surrounding villages. If you are unemployed or not working for reasons such as carer responsibilities, managing a disability or long term illness and aged over 19, we invite you to contact us to discuss the project.
Or do you have some time to spare and could help Recycle as a volunteer? Are you interested in helping to mend and refurbish bicycles or helping in the office with marketing or admin tasks? We would love to talk to you if you are interested in joining us as a volunteer.
