The PURE project brings together a range of coordinated interventions to assist the needs of Birmingham citizens with barriers into the employment market.
About PURE, Birmingham
PURE is a part-funded European Social Funded project. This project has been brought together by Birmingham City Council. The PURE project is designed to support the most vulnerable citizens of Birmingham who are socially and economically excluded from the labour market. The primary aim of the project is to provide intensive wrap around support to people who need holistic support.
PURE supports homeless households including families and single people, women fleeing domestic violence, people who have had experience within the criminal justice system and those at risk of offending, as well as individuals with learning difficulties, mental health issues, issues with alcohol or other drugs and sensory disabilities.
PURE intervention workers work to support, guide, educate and mentor individuals to help them take positive steps towards employment, education and training opportunities. This is with the hope that these opportunities will lead to a happier, safer, healthier life for our participants.
The PURE project is eligible for participants Birmingham wide, with an emphasis on areas such as Ladywood, Aston, Lozells and East Handsworth.

- Aged 24+
- Unemployed/inactive seeking employment
- Birmingham resident
