Story

Team Domenica provide innovative and personalised employment programmes that develop our candidates’ independence, confidence, communication, and work skills. By running for Team Domenica, our heroic marathon and 10k participants will be helping us by fundraising for our Wrap Around Programme.

Our Wrap Around program goes the extra mile by providing continuous support to our young people even after they've secured paid employment. The results speak for themselves - our program boasts an impressive success rate, with over 95% of our candidates maintaining their paid jobs for a year or longer, leaving the national average (25%) far behind! As a part of this initiative, every candidate who has achieved employment, along with their employer, receives personalised support tailored to their unique needs. This support may include regular weekly or monthly check-ins and workplace visits, facilitating assistance with appraisals, training, and personal development. Additionally, it serves as a platform for candidates to explore new employment opportunities or transition to different industries, broadening their range of job options.

This programme relies entirely on the support of our generous community – we couldn’t do it without our magnificent runners, and their supporters. Well done and thank you to everyone who are keeping this vital programme running.
