Goals Courses


The purpose of the GOALS course is to increase self-esteem and help create a positive outlook on life through developing new ways of thinking, coping and behaving.

VHA have received European Social Funding (ESF) from the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation, to offer a programme of support for people who are unemployed or economically inactive and who are interested in getting into employment or training. We have already held one GOALS course as part of this programme, and the feedback received from participants has been extremely positive.

Two Vectis tenants from East Cowes said the course was “enlightening and very interesting” and that it was “two days to help change my life”. Tenant Forum member Ian Hopkins attended the course. He said it was “Fantastic! A great two day course”.

There are two more opportunities to book a place on this course which is open to any residents aged 16 and over who are not currently employed. 

The next dates are:

 4th & 5th April and the 15th & 16th June

The course is free, takes place at Quay Arts in Newport and support can be given with transport and childcare costs.

If you would like to book a place on either of these courses call us at Vectis Housing Association on 01983 520353.
