Our new Opportunity Centre in Dewsbury is officially launched
04 October, 2019
Representatives from the local council, schools, colleges and businesses descended on Dewsbury on Friday, 4th October, to watch as Mayor Cllr Mumtaz Hussain and Mayoress Mrs Noreen Hussain, opened aspire-igen's brand new Opportunity Centre.
Aspire-igen moved from the previous centre on Westgate to larger premises at 25-27, just across the road. Being committed to changing lives for the better through learning and work, the new building allows us to broaden our service offering and make sure we can achieve our mission to help people and communities in Dewsbury to be the best they can be.
There was a true sense of celebration and optimism at the event about what The Opportunity Centre brings to the town. Young people are able to attend a number of free vocational courses run through the aspire2work programme. Other services running at the centre include the Accelerate programme alongside Shine Careers, both working with local schools and colleges to improve pupils’ chances of career success.
Caroline Harrison, Group Chief Executive Officer of aspire-igen said;-
“I’m delighted that we were able to acquire this fantastic building to create the new Dewsbury Opportunity Centre. Our motto is “It’s all about you’ and we’re here to do all we can to help the Dewsbury community realise their aspirations and help the region prosper. I encourage people to visit The Opportunity Centre and see for themselves the great resources that are available.”
