Nacro has centres at Spalding, Boston, Peterborough and Wisbech – and Wisbech and Boston offer adult provision for over 18s as well as work placements.
The centres do get referrals from careers advisors and Job Centres, schools and colleges, but parents, carers or young people themselves can make contact.
There is a discretionary bursary available for some learners to help with things like travel costs.
Trainer Zoe Whitmore says they have had “fabulous” results in the past.
She adds: “I often see ex-learners that have gone on and are now in full time jobs. We had one who achieved apprentice of the year a couple of years ago. They come to us with different needs and issues and go on to achieve fabulous things.”
