Working at the heart of homelessness

81 residents supported in jobs

81 residents supported in jobs

From 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020 28% of residents held a job, and 15% secured a new role.

Of those, 44% were in full-time roles, 33% in part-time and 23% on zero-hour contracts. By comparison, research shows that across the UK, an average 7% of people living in supported housing are in paid employment. Employment is a key goal for many of our residents, so we help residents to secure and keep jobs.

This includes work with partners to offer mentoring, supported job searches, CV development workshops, mock interviews and access to suitable clothing. In addition, 97 residents attended education sessions to learn new skills.
