what we're all about
Acting upon our Christian values, Tees Valley Community Projects (TVCP) has been working to reduce poverty and its effects for over a decade. Since 2016, our training arm, Three13, has addressed the issue of high unemployment in this area, helping people who are furthest from the job market back into work, by increasing their confidence through work experience, careers guidance and accredited training programmes.
Forgetting what's in the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, each person we engage with gets the tailored support they need to grow and develop, to overcome obstacles and fulfill their personal potential. This support takes place face-to-face, in working environments at our training hub or out in the community.
We believe you need worth to have hope, you need hope to have meaningful relationships, you need relationships to deal with the range of complex issues in your life and you need a holistic and tailored solution to be fully empowered... ‘Know your worth to change your story.’
Our vision is to see social and economic change in the Tees Valley, supporting those who face multiple disadvantage and addressing the digital skills gap. Helping people become confidently aware of their abilities, meaningfully employed and economically stable. We believe our work can be enhanced (and eventually sustained) through developing enterprises in which to host our training, to the benefit of our learners and the wider community.
