September 2022

Referrals Update We have now supported over 5,600 people through our Motiv8 programme. Last quarter we received the highest number of new referrals for over 3 years! Thank you for continuing to refer!

The Future of Motiv8 As you may know, after 6 years of delivery and several extensions, the Building Better Opportunities funding for Motiv8 is due to come to an end, meaning the programme is currently due to close on 31st March 2023. We have had some incredible achievements since the programme launched in 2017 and we expect to continue to take referrals until 31st October 2022. This will allow sufficient time for clients to get onto the programme and complete their action plan. If they have not completed their Motiv8 journey by the end of our programme, we will support them to access another agency or signpost them to places that can take them forward. We want to thank you all for your continued support in referring your clients to us, and to those agencies that have supported our Motiv8 clients on their journey to get back on track. We hope that this will still continue for the next few months! We are aware that Motiv8 provides that extra layer of support that so many people need before they are ready to look for employment or training. We are proactively exploring options to secure alternative funding to continue our work helping the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in Greater Manchester. If you would like to discuss future delivery possibilities, or have any positive feedback about how Motiv8 has helped your clients we would be delighted to hear from you.

Don't forget that our referral form can now be completed online:

Client Feedback We are very grateful for the wonderful feedback we get from our participants. Visit our website feedback page to see more: client-feedback

"Thank you so much for supporting our claimant; his confidence, motivation and general quality of life has clearly improved since you have been working with him... you have genuinely made such a positive difference and we can’t thank you enough." (JCP work coach)

A former client said a big 'thank you' for literally saving his life because of his key worker's insistence on making sure he had a dentist. He developed what he thought was toothache and was quickly able to make an appointment. It wasn't toothache. It was cancer. After 3 rounds of treatment he is now recovering well and wanted to get back in touch to personally thank his key worker.
