We are working on ways to help the homeless in the Newcastle/Northeast region with 2 initial ideas. The first is to provide shower and changing facilities to rough sleepers as well as free laundry services. The second is to provide access to work through a professional development programme that includes funds for travel, suit hiring for job interviews, and support with interview prep and the making of a CV.
We are currently in the process of conducting our needs assessment for this project and hope to gain insights on the direction that will have the most positive impact to improve their lives of the people we want to help once it is completed.
What Global Goals are we working towards?
1 – No Poverty
2 – Zero Hunger
3 – Good Health and Wellbeing
8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth
11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities
How can you help us?
We are looking for an organisation or individual with expertise in the area of employability who can help us conduct workshops on CV and interview skills. We are also looking to connect with local companies that can support us in providing changing and shower facilities.
