Neighbourhoods That Work
Neighbourhoods That Work (NTW) is a pioneering project to support vulnerable people and strengthen communities in Great Yarmouth. Delivered by a partnership of local organisations and led by Great Yarmouth Borough Council, NTW aims to help around 4,000 people overcome complex issues, identify their strengths and develop skills to benefit themselves and their neighbourhoods.
We work across the borough to support people to connect to their communities, to build confidence and resilience, and to overcome personal challenges which will enable them to move closer to work. Our approach to this focuses on the ’Life Connector’ model which involves acting as a ‘professional friend’ to develop meaningful relationships with residents so they can engage with services and move forward in their lives.
