Back on Track

Back on Track provides easy access training, education, work experience opportunities and personalised guidance for adults 18+ facing barriers to education and employment.  We work with four target groups: offenders / ex-offenders, those recovering from substance misuse, those who have been homeless or in unstable accommodation and adults recovering from long term mental ill-health problems.  All our services are supported by fully trained staff and volunteers.

Referral and availability notes

We take referrals from a range of agencies such as Probation, Community Mental health teams and hostels.  However we also take self-referrals.  All new service users must have an enrolment interview before registering on courses and activities.  These can be arranged by phoning reception and booking a time.  Support workers can also attend the interview if needed. 

We also run a drop-in afternoon every Tuesday afternoon 1-3pm which is open to staff, visitors and potential service users.  Come along for a chat, brew and a biscuit!  It is sometimes possible to have an initial interview straightaway - these are allocated on a first come first serve basis. 

Supporting people with:
Mental health conditions, Alcohol problems, Drug problems

Service users must have one or more of the following four target needs:

Offending background

Substance misuse

Homelessness / living in unstable accommodation
