The Try! Project is a friendly course set within the heart of the Beeston community on Dewsbury Road. The course covers Retail, IT and hands on Work Experience. You will learn about the whole donation process and get to try out different roles and responsibilities. Over 7 weeks the covers 60 hours of learning which leads to a Certa Level 1 Award in Skills for Further Learning. Meet new friends and gain confidence learning new skills. We are also in partnership with The White Rose centre and The Point Jobshop to help you get back in to work, further training or education.

Participants build skills that they can take into employment or further training and have the opportunity to contribute meaningfully as volunteers in our charity shops.

I didn’t think I had much to offer or much to give – but after completing the course and helping out now and again – I have learnt that I have skills to give, like helping sort the books.
