Pathmakers was recently awarded funding from the Lift programme (Local Investment in Future Talent) for it’s “Outdoors for the Future” project, LiftOff. LiftOff will enable small or medium-sized rural businesses in Norfolk offer work experience, work trials and internships (Lift Trials) to improve their recruitment and employment practices for those who might face barriers to finding work in the environment sector.

Project Officer Ella Meecham will work for Pathmakers for 3 days per week on the project, which runs until 2020. She will lead small groups of people on work trials carrying out tasks related to auditing and management of footpaths on land owned by the host businesses.
