Motiv8: Building Better Opportunities for Greater Manchester

Migrants Supporting Migrants is a delivery partner of the Motiv8 programme, providing support to Motiv8 participants facing language barriers through our Language, Employability and Integration Hub sessions to improve spoken English, social inclusion, and build confidence and employability. Participants can also be enrolled onto intensive English language and British Citizenship ‘fast track’ sessions.

Motiv8 supports people to overcome challenges preventing them from moving into training and employment.

It is being led by Manchester Athena, a partnership of housing associations working together to transform people’s lives by improving their skills, employment, health and well-being.

Over 3 years Motiv8 will support nearly 4,000 people to overcome multiple, complex needs and move them closer to training and work.

The programme has been set up thanks to £9.7 million funding from the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund’s Building Better Opportunities programme.
