Building Better Opportunities


Transforming lives across Worcestershire

A partnership between Willowdene, The National Lottery Community Fund, the European Social Fund and the Fusion Consortium

Design the future that you want

Don’t live someone else’s version of your life.  Discover your potential, design the future that you want and start living the life you were made for.

Move forward with confidence

Get the support you need to develop the skills and confidence to help you build the future you designed, and step into the life you were made to live.

Become who you are meant to be

You were meant for more.  You know that.  With the support of your BBO Coach, you can truly become the person you are meant to be.

Who is behind B.B.O?

Building Better Opportunities (the B.B.O. Project) is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.

The B.B.O. project has received £3,205,300 of funding from The National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England. The Department for Work and Pensions is the Managing Authority for the England European Social Fund programme.

Established by the European Union, the European Social Fund helps local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support skills development, employment and job creation, social inclusion and local community regenerations.
