Positive Planet France has extended its reach in the Var region by doubling the size of its Toulon branch and boosting activity at that in La-Seyne-sur-Mer. A specific room for training and collective workshops has been set up in Toulon so that the organisation can increase the support it offers the entrepreneurs. A new coach was also employed in 2018. The back-to-work initiative is led jointly with local community organisations.

We are supporting entrepreneurship in Toulon’s priority districts and encouraging cooperation between the various bodies working to get people back into employment. The grant we provided contributed to operating costs, building works and furniture for the new office in Toulon.

Funding: €30,000 in 2017-2018

Testimonies

We are working in considerably better conditions than before, as we have more space and resources and, most importantly, both we and our beneficiaries are much more comfortable. We can now offer more services to project initiators, such as workshops that run in tandem with the one-on-one support available, and a well-equipped workspace.
