Building Better Opportunities: New Horizons

CCHPR has been commissioned to evaluate the New Horizons programme. New Horizons combines elements of financial inclusion, digital inclusion and employability delivered by employees hosted delivered from hubs in Peterborough, Wisbech, Kings Lynn and Cambridge with rural outreach.

For this work, an action research approach is being taken, to ensure that services remain timely and relevant, adapting services to changes in the operating environment and to feedback from participants and key stakeholders.  

New Horizons services are targeted at people who are furthest from the labour market and are at most risk of social exclusion and who:

  • are struggling to make ends meet
  • have accessed crisis support e.g. foodbanks
  • have significant priority debt
  • live in households in which no-one works
  • will be affected by benefits changes and/or are likely to struggle when Universal Credit is introduced locally

The project plans to work with 488 people, of whom 67 will move into job searching and 98 into training.
