The guiding principle of Solid Foundations is recognising the barriers people face. We believe that to give individuals a real chance to progress in life these barriers must be removed.
Solid Foundations has been designed to meet each person’s specific needs and provide personal support. We also address deeper problems such as debt, mental health issues, physical health, disability, literacy, numeracy, addiction, past offending and self belief. This approach ensures that individuals have a better chance of succeeding with what they want to achieve.
Solid Foundations is led by Citizens Advice Northumberland delivering as Thriving Together Northumberland – with Cygnus Support, Northern Learning Trust, Community Action Northumberland, Northumberland Community & Voluntary Action, and Blyth Resource and Initiative Centre as delivery partners.
Solid Foundations is funded by the UK Government through the UKPSF with the North of Tyne Combined Authority as the lead authority.
