Going the Extra Mile (GEM)
GEM - a major new project around employment and training.

GDA is delighted to have been selected as one of nearly forty delivery partners on a major new European Funded project in Gloucestershire. It's called GEM (which stands for 'Going the Extra Mile') and its aim is to engage with and support Gloucestershire's hardest-to-reach, most vulnerable unemployed and financially-excluded people, who face multiple barriers to work.

GDA's role will be to work with participants who are deaf or hard of hearing, who may also be facing other challenges and to help move them closer towards education, training, volunteering or work, including self-employment.

This project is a partnership of community focused organisations, managed by Gloucestershire Gateway Trust on behalf of Gloucestershire County Council. The GEM Project is jointly funded by the Big Lottery and European Social Fund.
As a delivery partner, GDA is now inviting anyone who is deaf and looking for help towards further education, training, volunteering, employment or self employment to get in touch with us. Please note this project has a strict eligibility criteria - this will be discussed with you upon enquiry.
