The Chances Team has asked us to post the following.

Chances have worked with over a thousand Norfolk residents and have a proven track record of developing individuals in terms of their skills and their confidence making them more job-ready. This is available for our parishishioners to boost opportunities, provide a positive social impact and deliver economic benefit in our area.

Chances is partnership between Norfolk County Council, Future Projects, Norfolk Citizens Advice, Voluntary Norfolk and Citizens Advice Diss & Thetford. We are part funded through the European Social Fund with the remainder of our funding being generated within the county. Chances is delivered locally with a team of experienced Advocates working in each district of Norfolk.
