Realising Your Potential

Pattern circle

At Twenty11, we want to empower you to realise your potential by helping you to make, meet and exceed goals in both your personal and working life.

We'll also encourage you to play an active and positive role by volunteering in our community.

Community Potential Specialist

If you live in one of our homes, you might want to work with one of our Community Potential Specialists. They can work with you on a one-to-one basis to provide life coaching, motivation and support. They can help you to access training or work experience, improve your confidence and wellbeing, help with your career goals – or anything else that you have set your eyes on.

We work with a network of local partners to give you access to exciting and varied opportunities. 

Why use life coaching?

Life coaching is all about helping people to identify and achieve their personal goals. Our Community Potential Specialists will help you identify and focus on your goals and aspirations, and start to map out how you'll get there. At the heart of our Realising Potential Approach is the idea that you have the power to help yourself and reach your goals, with a little assistance where needed.

How it works 

Our Community Potential Specialist is available to work with you to understand what you want to achieve, what you believe your potential is, and what you think the barriers are which prevent you from realising it.

The Community Potential Specialist will then work with you to draw up a Personal Success Plan and work together to achieve it – including identifying where partner organisations can provide services to meet specific needs, for example:

  • Securing work experience placements
  • Finding volunteering or community involvement opportunities
  • Helping to enhance CVs or applications
  • Providing mentoring or coaching
  • Helping with maximising income/improving finances
  • Helping with interviews and being ‘interview ready’.

Personal Success Plans

What does a Personal Success Plan look like?

This will depend entirely on individual goals, where you are now, and where you want to get to. For example, it can include:

  • A clear description of your goals and objectives with timescales where relevant
  • A commitment to complete the actions which have been agreed
  • Details of the support Twenty11 and partner organisations will provide
  • Your commitment to maintain regular communication with the Community Potential Specialist.

Aspiration Pot

We also know that sometimes a financial helping hand is needed, and that is why we have our Aspiration Pot. Our customers can apply for help to fund training courses, travel costs, or an interview suit for example – it’s there to help make dreams a reality.
