We help people to build new skills, develop existing talents, access training opportunities and find meaningful work.

People impacted by homelessness sometimes encounter barriers when accessing education and employment. There can be lots of reasons for this, from physical health issues to previous bad experiences. Whatever a person’s circumstances, our Work + Learning programme is there to help.

Everyone staying with us has their own passions, talents and aspirations; we work with them to find education and employment opportunities that match. Furthermore, we run workshops and one-to-one sessions to help people build confidence and motivation, improve their wellbeing at work, and build new skills.

Work and learning support is available to everyone across our services, and can take a number of different forms:

  • We work individually with customers to identify their goals and develop plans to reach them.
  • We design and co-deliver training and workshops to meet people’s support needs.
  • We refer customers to relevant external education and employment opportunities.
  • We deliver Business in the Community’s Ready for Work programme, which provides direct employment opportunities for customers with over 130 businesses. There is a range of formal and informal opportunities, some of which are accredited.

For more information on the range of opportunities available, or for any further information about our Work + Learning programme, please email jon.deakin@evolvehousing.org.uk.
