ABOUT


ABOUT

Informal Learning is a not-for-profit organisation focused on housing and supporting the homeless in and around Wakefield, West Yorkshire. As an organisation, we take great pride in the positive outcomes of our service-users, who constitute some of the most disadvantaged and deprived individuals in the district.

Founded in 2008 by Marilyn Iwanuschak, Informal Learning primarily focused on youth and community work. Having previously managed and supported numerous organisations and community initiatives across the UK, Marilyn used her knowledge and expertise to establish a close and trusting relationship with the local community, and in doing so we found ourselves highly regarded in our endeavours.

During this youth and community work we identified a major problem : homelessness. Over recent years Informal Learning has shifted it's focus to help address this ever-growing issue.
