The journey into work can sometimes be difficult, especially when there are barriers which prevent you from realising your potential.

Alternatively you can speak to your Job Centre Work Coach or Careers Wales Advisor to find out further information or be referred to ADTRAC.

What will happen when I first meet the ADTRAC team?

Firstly they will meet with you to find out a bit more about you, what you want to achieve, what you are finding difficult and discuss with you the type of support you could expect to receive from us. They will then be able to explore with you the approach they can take to support you to overcome your barriers and to achieve your goals.

After that they will complete the sign up paperwork with you and once all the documents are in place, they will begin writing an action plan with you and putting together your support package. The support you receive will be personal to you, and could include assistance on a range of things including welfare matters, wellbeing, mild/moderate mental health concerns, skills improvement and employability.

How often you meet or the type of support you have after that will depend entirely on what you need to progress to achieve your goals.

What is ADTRAC's Eco Code?

Throughout the lifetime of the project, ADTRAC will promote sustainable development and minimise its impact on the environment. ADTRAC will adopt the following approaches to achieve this:

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle:
We will use only the materials we need so we reduce this risk of waste. Where possible the project will recycle materials and purchase recycled materials.

We will encourage more environmentally friendly ways to travel including encouraging the use of public transport, vehicle sharing where possible and reducing the need for travel where possible through using technology such as google hangout, video conferences and skype.

We will encourage our teams to adopt practical ways of saving energy, including turning off electronic devices when not in use, turning off all heating/lighting when it is not needed, closing all doors/windows in winter; and turning off taps whenever they are not in use.

Encourage Others:
We will produce materials which provide practical tips on how we can have a positive impact on the environment, these will be available in video format as well as literature to reduce the amount of factsheets we will need to produce.

This video clip
offers one tip per month which can be easily incorporated into everyday life and collectively can make a real difference over a year.
