Equipped for a fresh start


Read James' story

“I was a carer for my son for 9 years until a relationship breakdown last year which left me homeless. I became depressed. I wanted to find work but had been out of employment for so long I didn’t know where to start. The project helped me find housing and to get up and out the house instead of sitting in all day. I’ve gained certificates and skills for work and now been offered work which I’m really excited about starting. Without the support I would’ve still been in my depression whereas now I feel I have a bright future.”

Thousands of people are just one payday away from not being able to pay their rent. Losing your job can mean living on the streets is your only option.

Through our training and skills programmes, we support people who are furthest from the job market to get back into employment.

We help make people more visible to not just potential future employers, but also to themselves.

We help people develop skills such as CV writing, budgeting, interview techniques and accessing training to improve their chances of finding the right job for them.
