As a community and voluntary sector organisation in the heart of the community, NG7TEA provides culturally appropriate services and a welcoming environment for the ethnic make up of the local communities within the area. Consequently it receives many enquiries regarding a wide range of issues from school places to tax credits, student loan forms and passport renewals. The team foster positive community engagement by helping or referring many local people to appropriate agencies and services providers.
Our strength is in our flexible, person centred approach, tailored to the specific needs of our diverse communities. We offer one to one support, identifying needs, challenges and barriers to develop individual plans and supporting them in their journey to develop the skills, confidence and ability to undertake relevant and appropriate education, training and employments searches. This approach facilitates “matching” leading to positive, sustainable outcomes.
We offer outreach support into communities, utilising a range of community venues and facilities to ensure we are accessible. Our team is reflective of the population we serve and many of our staff are bilingual.
