New Leaf Building Better Opportunities

New Leaf brings together partners from across Warrington and Cheshire to change lives, create opportunities and make a positive contribution to local communities and the regional economy.

New Leaf programme will be looking to support over 2,800 people from across Cheshire, enabling them to move closer to employment over three year until September 2019. The project has been allocated £10.6 million of funding through the Building Better Opportunities programme and is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery, through the Big Lottery Fund, which provides investment in local projects that increase economic development by investing in projects which will support skills development, employment and job creation, social inclusion and local community regeneration.

 Disability Information Bureau is one of the many partners involvement in the New Leaf project, and we support people from across Cheshire East.

New Leaf Building Better Opportunities has the potential to change lives, create opportunities and a positive future for local people in Cheshire and Warrington
