Our Work

We are always looking out for opportunities to help people in new ways. Here are some of the main things we’re proud of doing…

Between April 2003 and September 2011 Third Sector Solutions delivered support to over 2400 New Deal customers through a Counselling and Mental Health Risk Assessment service funded by Jobcentre Plus

Our team of highly trained counsellors and assessors is experienced in working with Jobcentre Plus and other funders and commissioners. We have worked with Jobcentres across the West of England District and have achieved a high level of outcomes and satisfaction for JCP customers and New Deal Personal Advisors

Third Sector Solutions also delivers services under contract to Bristol, South Gloucestershire, N Somerset and Banes Social Services Departments. Third Sector has also delivered a series of other similar service programmes funded by European Social Fund and Jobcentre Plus

Third Sector Solutions manages Stowey Bottom Farm, a therapeutic horticulture project based in the Chew Valley. This project typically take referrals from Adult Care/Social Services Depts and Community Mental Health Teams. They provide work experience, training qualifications, placement services and specialist support

Between December 2009 and 2015, Third Sector Solutions delivered services under the JCP Support Contract for people on JSA and ESA, through our partnership with Pinnacle People. We delivered training modulesĀ  for unemployed people in seven locations around the Bristol/S Glos area. We also delivered a six/eight week training and placement module – Launch Pad for Lone Parents, and a mentoring support service for these customer groups across the South-west. 3500 customers participated in these services

From April 2012 to 2014 we delivered a mentoring service for people on JSA in the Bristol City Council area, through Opportunities Bristol, a partnership headed by TCV. We provided one-to-one contact, placements, in-work support, an information service and on-going monitoring including mental health support
