GEMonline launches timetable for January and February

The GEM Project aims to engage with and support people in Gloucestershire who are dealing with circumstances that may cause barriers to work and move them closer towards education, training or work, including self-employment.

At a difficult and challenging time for many people, GEM wants to do everything it can to support people during this period.

The new GEMonline timetable is filled with employability, skills, wellbeing and social sessions to keep people entertained, whilst also supporting their mental health and employability journey.

As well as the usual workshops and activities, there is a great range of new sessions to try from laughter yoga to job clubs.

There are some new basic skills sessions to help boost confidence, with the Brush up your English workshops, as well as job clubs covering Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and Cotswold areas.

Wellbeing is once again high on the agenda, with a range of new sessions to run alongside existing wellbeing and social activities, including a lunchtime stretch and train session, make your own mosaic workshop, time out on Tuesday session, walk in nature activity, journaling for positivity and the return of the music and song singalong. GEM will also be hosting a livestreamed session on its Facebook page, providing an insight to the wellbeing workshop.

The organisation will be delivering several new skill sessions including creative speech and self expression; understanding discrimination in the workplace; and mental health awareness.

GEMonline is free, easy to access and open to everyone. GEM would like to support as many people as possible during this time.
