Location

Situation

We are based in Newham an area of identified high homelessness. Our beneficiaries experience complex need and lack skills to allow them to return to independent living and employment. We want to address the lack of skills and confidence by building a suite of training and community spaces, along with a kitchen for the use of beneficiaries to enhance access to the holistic range of services delivered by our Aspirations Programme of vocational, educational and rehabilitative opportunities.

Solution

The proposed facilities will help ease the transition from being homeless to independent living. Our beneficiaries will have the opportunity to take control back of all aspects of their life including building confidence, personal rehabilitation, money management, bills and cooking.This extra support will help them adjust to the change and be able to face any challenges that independent living may throw at them.
