Pathways to employment


Motiv8 supports people to overcome challenges preventing them from moving into training and employment.

It is being led by Manchester Athena, a partnership of housing associations working together to transform people’s lives by improving their skills, employment, health and well-being.

Over 3 years Motiv8 will support nearly 4,000 people to overcome multiple, complex needs and move them closer to training and work.

The programme has been set up thanks to £9.7 million funding from the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund’s Building Better Opportunities programme.

New Charter is the accountable body for the Motiv8 programme.  We provide an integrated service across Greater Manchester which aligns with the priorities of devolution whilst significantly improving the lives of participants by reducing the alarming health inequalities faced by this population and overcoming the barriers to accessing universal and targeted services.

Our Commercial & Partnerships division is constantly looking to form new partnerships in order to provide more pathways to employment to the people of Greater Manchester. If you’d like to work with us, contact and tell us how.
