New Horizons is a project offering support to those living in the Liverpool City Region who experience specific and multiple barriers accessing job search, training and education opportunities which would enable them to enter into the employment market.

The key objectives of New Horizons is to remove barriers to employment and education opportunities through raising aspirations, developing confidence and skills, and raising awareness of pathways into employment opportunities.
