Our Employment Academy and private members’ club give people affected by homelessness the skills and confidence they need to get into lasting paid work.

We work with people intensely over three months and then continue to support them to find work, to progress, to move to safe affordable homes, and to see a better future for themselves.

Supporting people to get into work is vital to breaking cycle of homelessness.

Work gives structure, a sense of purpose and opportunity, confidence and, importantly, the financial security needed to regain independence and thrive.
