Who Dares Works is a partnership of organisations, led by Active Plus, working to help individuals in West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to reconnect with education, training and employment.

Who Dares Works

Who Dares Works has already supported over 850 people on their journey to education, training or employment. The project has now secured a further £3.3 million from the National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund to support a further 832 individuals who face the biggest barriers and challenges currently stopping them from achieving their goals.

At the heart of the project is the Active Plus course. Delivered by military veterans from Active Plus, the course has been designed to build confidence, motivation and self-belief to enable participants to move forward. Alongside attending the course, participants will work with their mentor to determine their long term goal(s) and achieve them by tapping in to a range of specialist support and a host of work-related activities, from volunteering to community projects, taster days to work experience and everything in between.

The partnership is led by Active Plus and includes the following organisations:
