Helping you to get ON TRACK
On Track is a project to clear barriers to work for young people in Norfolk who have multiple and complex needs. The project helps to support young people aged 16-24 to get into education, training or employment.
It's a joint initiative, led by The Matthew Project, working in partnership in Norfolk, with GYROS, NANSA, The Prince’s Trust and YMCA Norfolk. This project is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
On Track has affected my happiness – in the past I struggled with mental health issues. On Track has given me the opportunity to get involved with things and has helped me to turn things around”

What are we doing currently?
On Track now delivers a programme for our participants which helps them to re-engage through positive activities. These activities are based around four key elements:
- Healthy Mind
- Skills and Learning
So far we have engaged young people through the following activities – Functional Skills (English and Maths), cooking skills , walking football, Boxing for fitness, creative writing, vision boards, mindfulness, well being walks and anxiety workshops.
In order to engage our participant’s, we also hold monthly Steering Groups which involve our young people directly and have helped to shape the sort of activities that we deliver.
