The Going the Extra Mile (GEM) Project aims to engage with and support Gloucestershire’s hardest-to-reach, most vulnerable unemployed and financially-excluded people, who face multiple barriers to work.

GEM’s primary objective is to move these people closer towards education, training, volunteering or work, including self-employment.

This project is a partnership of community focused organisations, managed by Gloucestershire Gateway Trust on behalf of Gloucestershire County Council. The GEM Project is jointly funded by the Big Lottery and European Social Fund

The Door’s GEM Navigator Developer is Jess, she is focusing on working with young people aged 11-25 helping them move closer to employment.

Jess says:

“I am really excited to have this opportunity to come alongside young people and help them navigate the obstacles preventing them from moving forwards. The young people who are currently signed up to this programme have already made great steps towards building a better future for themselves, helping them on their path to reaching their full potential”
