We offer our services to the homeless or those at risk of homelessness. However, we go far beyond merely housing individuals. Believing it necessary for their rehabilitation to support them in all matters, we have established a highly qualified and experienced workforce of support staff who, alongside our extensive network of specialist organisations, strive to further the independence and personal development of our service-users.
Informal Learning also concerns itself with creating a high quality conscientious, professional workforce through our nationally recognised training schemes. As a recognised partner of the YMCA George Williams College in London, we are able to mentor individuals wishing to gain accredited qualifications in youth and community work, successfully delivering this training in numerous communities throughout Yorkshire. We also provide support, advice and mentoring packages to organisations looking to strengthen their delivery of youth and community work.
In the future, we hope to further improve the rehabilitation of our service-users through expanding the skill set of our staff as well as strengthening our relations with local employers in order to allow our service-users to gain skills in certain trades and aid their employability. However, our expansion depends on the funding we receive, and so we actively encourage support; whether it be financial, through donating household items, or by volunteering.
