What is New Tomorrow?

New Tomorrow is a one to one, support programme for people ready to find work, or those looking to take the first steps towards employmentThe programme is exclusively for people living in and around Launceston –  we are also based in Launceston, offering you convenience and local knowledge.  

New Tomorrow provides the opportunity to work with a mentor (for weeks, months or more than a year) to discuss, plan and complete steps that will start your journey, moving forwards with your life 

Our New Tomorrow mentors are here to offer support and guidance, exploring your future goals and discussing any problems or barriers you’re currently facing, or have faced in the past.  

If you would benefit from further qualifications or training, we work closely with the tutors at Step into Learning in Launceston, to design a plan based on your goals. Step into Learning can offer: 

  • Short and longer-term courses and training 
  • Face to face and online sessions 
  • Support from your mentor and the course tutors to decide which option is right for you  

 If you are feeling worried or stressed about everyday life and that is stopping you looking for work, we can help and support you to gain a better understanding of how to get things back on track, taking one step at a time.
