Improving lives, increasing prospects

We can help you in a number of ways, to gain employment, access education, training, volunteering, finding work experience or apprenticeships. We also offer confidential personal support for a range of issues. 

What is MPT Steps?

MPT Steps is a Lancashire partnership project, funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) programme, which will aim to engage with over 4,000 job seekers who may have recently been made unemployed or those who are economically inactive living in Lancashire.

The project, set to run until December 2023, will seek to address the issues faced by disadvantaged Lancashire communities in accessing or re-accessing the job market as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic. It brings together various organisations from different sectors to share best practice and provide greater coverage across the county.

MPT Steps will provide tailored 1-2-1 mentoring support to residents living in Lancashire, with the opportunity to engage in a range of activities which will help improve overall health and wellbeing.
