Opportunities to gain qualifications, skills and employment.

For young people, getting their first job can be extremely difficult if they don’t have the necessary experience.  And how do you get the experience if no one wants to give you a job? For a homeless person, getting a job or holding on to one, is equally as challenging. So, we continually strive to give our residents routes back into employment.

Life skills programme

One of the ways we do this is through our Life Skills programme, which gives our young people essential skills such as how to budget, cook and manage a tenancy. Offered to all of our residents across all of our branches, it also includes how to look for a job or training and how to create a CV.

Personal Development programme

We also provide a Personal Development programme to encourage young people to challenge themselves, step out of their comfort zone, experience new environments, meet new people, promote team work and develop their skills and experience.

A range of training opportunities for young people are offered through our West Kent branch. This includes internship programmes for a range of projects. Click here to find out more about training and education programmes offered.
