Training & Education

We believe that every person should be able to fulfill their potential.

For young people, getting their first job can be extremely difficult if they don’t have the necessary experience.  And how do you get the experience if no one wants to give you a job?

For a homeless person, getting a job or holding on to one, is equally as challenging. So we continually strive to give our residents routes back into employment.

Life Skills Programme

One of the ways we do this is through our Life Skills Programme, which gives our young people essential skills such as how to budget, cook and manage a tenancy. It also includes how to look for a job, training and to create a CV.

Personal Development Programme

We also provide a personal development programme to encourage young people to challenge themselves, step out of their comfort zone, experience new environments, meet new people, promote team work and develop their skills and experience.

How to enroll

Our programmes aims to offer those who are statutory homeless and those currently living in temporary accommodation information in their interest, which in turn might lead to them securing a paid role and also to increased sustainability.

Our programmes are available to those in our supported accommodation. For more information please contact your assigned support worker at your centre.
