Lift Up

What is the Lift Up Project?

The Lift up Project is a partnership between The Gym Group and Spectra First as part of the Care Leavers Covenant to support care leavers aged 16-25. The Gym Group will be offering a 3-week work experience placement to care leavers who may or may not be interested in health & fitness but are looking for an opportunity to gain experience in the world of work.

What are the objectives:

  • To provide a friendly environment for care leavers to develop themselves personally and professionally

  • A first step towards the experience of working within the fitness industry

  • Involvement with real situations and interactions with members and team

  • To exceed current perceived abilities by developing skills to improve employability
