Get On Information Services

Get On Information Services


Get On is a partnership approach to enabling people to get help with everyday issues, so they can move towards better job or life prospects.

Get On offers free information on help with volunteering, education, training and employment opportunities, as well as pointing people in the direction of support with issues of debt, housing, drug usage, mental health or other life issues. The service is person centred, so it is easy to access, and all staff in the Get On network are trained and approachable.

By working with the Neighbourhood Partnerships, Get On is achieving results locally, and is making use of innovations developed at neighbourhood, city and national level. Get On demonstrates how 'shared services' can really make a difference on the ground.

Features of the Get On service include the Get On Bus, which can park in any place across the city and provide free information to local residents, over the phone information, and the integration of nearly 60 Guidance Access Points, to create the 'Get On Information Point network'.  All information points, and the Get On Bus use specially designed software to track the progress of service users, and to help identify the best support for each individual.
