An opportunity for training and community
The third core element to our services focuses on offering training and purpose for those we have built up a relationship with and are motivated to learn, develop and find employment. Each trainee has a personal development plan. It may take time to build up someone’s confidence before they start to believe in themselves and their talents and abilities.
WHAT WE DO
The Projects we run to help Rough Sleepers get off the streets.
We provide assistance with Essentials, Support and Purpose
Trainee Personal Development Plan
Each of our trainees are individuals and as such they have their very own unique individual training plan. We have a trainee agreement which is a signed document of understanding between the trainee and the charity. Each plan has specific goals and aims plus records achievements.
Ex-homeless can be placed on either internal or external placements to learn new skills, build up confidence and improve their employability in the future. This may lead to improving life skills or paid work.
Trainee Aspiration Pot
Our TAP is a pot set aside as a reward for our trainees for their work. So each trainee can access the TAP for their needs or development. The money can be used to help finance housing, training, driving lessons or an IT course for example.
Our shop sells handmade wooden gifts made by those we have helped get off the streets. We also sell high quality donated goods. (TRAINEE OPPORTUNITIES IN RETAIL)
