Choices Plus


Choices Plus is open to lone parents throughout Northern Ireland who would like to return to training and education in their local area. Funded by the EU’s ESF programme and designed to complement government programmes, it offers support and bursaries to help with the costs associated with returning to study, including childcare, travel and course fees.

In addition, Choices Plus supports lone parents to progress towards employment by providing professional careers advice and guidance, work placements with local employers to gain experience, welfare rights advice incorporating “better-off” calculations, ongoing mentoring and support with job search, job applications and interview preparation.

Places are limited so we recommend that you apply as soon as possible.  If you are interested in finding out more information please contact Avril on 02890231417.

“Claire from Belfast was a participant on Choices Plus for one year while she completed the NEB Certificate in Dental Nursing. She received help towards her course fees and childcare costs. After qualifying she secured part time employment at a local dental surgery.  She really enjoys being back at work and feels it has been beneficial for both herself and her children. “Choices Plus has opened so many doors for me; it was a  big step for me moving back into work and without the support and financial assistance from the project I don’t think it would have been possible. It has made a definite improvement to myself and my children’s lives. Choices Plus is great and I would highly recommend it”
