Get On!

Working in partnership with Manchester Deaf Centre, we are managing the Prince’s Trust funded Get On! project. We are helping young deaf people from Greater Manchester increase their confidence and improve their access to further education and employment.

Through a programme of activities and bespoke support pathways for the young people, we are supporting them to

  • Get Moving! have fun and increase their physical fitness
  • Get Ready! and enhance their work readiness
  • Get Ahead! and take part in work experience and apprenticeship opportunities.

The young people took part in cookery, art and photography workshops at a Welcome Event in June 2021.

There has been online fitness and cookery activities, a tenpin bowling trip.

“The sailing was fab. I want to do it again and again. Best day ever”

Trips to Debdale Outdoor Centre for watersports

Some of the young people helped organise a Deaf Role Models Event in September with 6 inspiring deaf speakers.

I just feel happy to be part of the project. I still get nervous but just happy”
