The Tigers Trust is proud and excited to share the launch of two new funded programmes working with Humber Learning Consortium (HLC) after successfully attracting Hull UKSPF funding.  
Building on the successful partnerships we already have with Primary Schools in Hull and collaboration with partners across the City, we are currently in the process of mobilising these programmes; Exploring Volunteering and Families Learning Together
Exploring Volunteering (EV) is a City-wide partnership-based ‘access to employment’ programme delivered by experienced Hull voluntary organisations, including the Trust.  
Using a personalised keyworker model, Exploring Volunteering will support economically inactive beneficiaries by providing volunteering opportunities, work experience placements, diverse and engaging wellbeing enrichment activities, and a wraparound programme of interpersonal, employability, and basic skills development support, to help develop positive mindset, confidence, motivation, and work-related behaviours. 
For example, allowing the Trust to offer experiences directly linked to our Hull City where many of our volunteers begin their journey with the Trust on match days. This programme offers the opportunity to deliver interpersonal and employability skills support and training such as confidence, motivation, and behavioural issues. Building on our successful ‘Tigers Pathways’ programme which offers a unique, bespoke and targeted 6 week programme of skills support and various training to support participants who are the furthest away from the labour market with their confidence in employability skills. 
The ‘Families Learning Together’ programme is focused on engaging with unemployed parents of children within local primary schools, for the first time working alongside both Hull FC Foundation and Hull KR Foundation to deliver the Families Learning Together project, through a programme of accessible work-readiness support and empowering them with the skills, confidence, and knowledge to progress into sustainable employment. 
This entails three strands, co-created with potential beneficiaries, which will support parents to develop life skills alongside their children, receive tailored employment and skills support in accessible community settings, and participate in activities that inspire greater mental wellbeing. 
‘Families Learning Together’ will empower parents to develop new skills, achieve greater wellbeing, and engage in positive activities that provide them a better opportunity of securing employment. 
The Tigers Trust is proud to be launching this with two of our brilliant partner PL Primary Stars schools, Christopher Pickering and Broadacre in the coming weeks, plus rolling out to an additional 4 schools over the year. 
Catherine Bishop, CEO of the Tigers Trust expressed her delight on the introduction of the two programmes: “The Trust is very excited to work with HLC and collaborate with a range of key VCSE partners from across Hull to deliver these important and much needed community programmes. 
Exploring Volunteering provides a fantastic opportunity to build on our successful Tigers Pathways delivery, helping people develop and strengthen their interpersonal and employability skills, through volunteering opportunities with the Trust and it’s partners. 
We are especially delighted to have been presented the fantastic opportunity to work alongside Hull FC Foundation and Hull KR Foundation to deliver the Families Learning Together project, where each sporting charity will provide additional support to 6 of their own partner schools. This is the first time we have all three teamed up to deliver activities directly into and for the benefit of our communities, using the power of our respective badges. 
Hull is quite unique with three fantastic sporting Clubs each with a brilliant charity and I believe this should be celebrated as there are enormous opportunities for us to do more together moving forward. 
Thank you to HLC for facilitating this opportunity. Watch this space as this is a powerful collaboration and I hope the first of many more."
