Unemployment and homelessness often go hand-in-hand, because unemployment causes income loss, which can cause accommodation loss and often relationship breakdown. Similarly, unemployment can be one of the greatest barriers to overcome on the path to recovery as a stable income brings opportunities for transition from supported housing to a home and sustainable future. HopeCollege aims to provide the opportunities needed to rebuild self-worth, rediscover skills for life and develop the talents that may lead to a rewarding and fulfilling career.
Experience of homelessness should not be a barrier to getting back on your own two feet and you can be part of breaking down the barrier, ensuring that everyone that comes to New Hope can strive for a future that works for them.
As little as £9 could pay for a resident’s travel to and from their college course for a week, £19 could provide a workshop in PAT Testing as a foundation of a career in electrical engineering whereas £42 would pay for a practical workshop in Food Hygiene and Cookery for a resident considering a future in catering as well as providing key life-skills that will travel with them into their own accommodation.
