Situation

For people who have been reliant on benefits for many years, a home of their own us usually out of reach. Our project could help people move away from supported housing, and their reliance on benefits and become self reliant in the community. The cost of a full time advice and activities worker per annum is approximately £28,000, with an additional £12,000 for admin and project management costs.
