We are a charity that has come about through peoples desire to help. Working on the "teach a man to fish" principle we seek to equip unemployed youth, homeless people and minorities in rural communities with the skills, experience and references they need to get into work.
Because people are individual we tailor our support and assistance to each person. Typically our type of 'direct intervention' assistance is limited to six months or a year per person due to our financial constraints. However, we aim to ensure that those who receive our help have a firm foundation when they leave us and will provide guidance on finding employment and accommodation if required.
A large part of our work is in finding work placements, training and mentoring.
As a charity we were born in rural England, however we feel there are not geographic limits charity.
To date we have worked with recipients from different countries and even people from other charities.
We are an organisation with Christian values at our core. As such we believe in providing assistance wherever we can. Our focus is on helping people overcome the individual obstacles they face to grow, develop, get into work and achieve their goals. This could be as simple as mentoring for CV writing and interview skills or as detailed as starting by finding accommodation for someone whose family will not accept them or their life style, before we can work on their job prospects. Regardless of peoples origins, beliefs or orientation we welcome each individual on their own merits.
