A Year in Stats

We are delighted to report on the performance of the Volition programme at Liverpool Cathedral for 2016. Below you will find excerpts from the report highlighting key areas and statistics. The report reinforces the core values of the Volition programme, this being supporting people who want to work, tackling social exclusion and running an effective and impactful programme, which ultimately reduces unemployment in the city by way of actively deploying and engaging employers as partners who share in our core values.

Particularly satisfying results are;

  • 30% of volunteers who went in to work have health conditions,
  • 18% of volunteers who went in to work who had little or no qualifications, and
  • 97% of volunteers were long term unemployed.

All of these results are hugely encouraging and provide an excellent foundation upon which we continue to grow and develop. Further statistics are found below.
