Welcome to #Focus5

The #Focus5 project provides unique, flexible, one-to-one support to young people aged 15-18 across Devon, Plymouth, Torbay and Somerset, who may be struggling to move forwards in life.

We’re funded to support those who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) or at risk of becoming so. We also help home educated youngsters or anyone out of education or employment for medical reasons. For young parents returning to learning or employment, childcare funding is available whilst they’re working with us.

Funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund we help young people take steps back into education, employment or training. We encourage development of the '5' key skills identified by employers as being gateways to employment: Communication - Customer Service - Organisation - Problem Solving - Teamwork.
