Our aim is to provide a progressive pathway of support services that will facilitate the health, education and well being of children, young people and their families living with disability and additional needs. We are now focussing on young people with additional needs transitioning into adulthood who are able to participate in learn, work and earn projects leading towards accredited qualifications including traineeships and apprenticeships and at risk of being overlooked due to their exclusion from traditional and statutory entry to employability programmes within the local community and business environments.

I started working at Mansfield CVS aged just 18, initially as an admin apprentice studying a level 2 NVQ and later progressing to doing a “Higher” apprenticeship (NVQ level 3). It was my first job and when I began working here I had very low self-confidence and no practical work experience at all! Due to the nature of the work, helping other charities in the local area, and the lovely people I work with, I soon discovered I really enjoy working in the charity sector and would be very happy to have a career in it – something I had never considered prior to joining MCVS.
