A Pathway to Work

Opportunity and Change

What is Opportunity and Change?

Opportunity and Change, led by Framework, is an employment-related support project for people facing severe and multiple disadvantage. It is delivered by a partnership of community-based organisations across D2N2 (Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire).

Our project supports unemployed or economically inactive individuals, referred to as participants, experiencing at least two of the following issues:

  • Being homeless or vulnerably housed
  • Problematic substance or alcohol misuse
  • At risk of offending or reoffending
  • Mental ill-health
  • Domestic Abuse

The project is part of the Building Better Opportunities (BBO) Programme, which is funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and The National Lottery Community Fund.
