PET-Xi are now running their successful Positive Futures programme out of Sheffield Futures.
Sheffield Futures is at the heart of the city and a hub of activity for young people.
PET-Xi are currently running a Level 2 Volunteer programme with 15 NEET young people with a view to finding them a sustained progress route into employment or education. The fact that we can now offer a city centre base for our learning provision is a great asset and with all the multi agency support within Sheffield futures, it is sure to be a successful partnership.
“At Sheffield Futures we are very proud of the One Stop Shop for young people that we have created in Sheffield City Centre. This ‘One Stop Shop approach is key to the city’s strategy for supporting vulnerable young people. Having Pet Xi join us in this exciting development has provided us with an essential piece of the jigsaw, a training provider located in the centre providing effective engagement activity provision. For young people who have engaged with support services based at our centre, there now exists a seamless and supported pathway into training with Pet Xi at a venue that the young people are familiar with. For young people on the programme, there exists in the centre, a range of support services and information about progression opportunities that are easily accessible to them”
