The Purfleet Trust Resettlement Project
  • Need


    We are trying to help our clients achieve a stable and productive way of life, so that they can secure and maintain affordable accommodation for themselves and their families.


    By providing essential training on tenancy issues, debt management, lifeskills (including cookery, painting and decorating, gardening), job applications and basic literacy and numeracy.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To add literacy and numeracy classes to our existing training and support programmes.


    » Employ tutors, ideally 2 for 8 hours per week each.

    Success will be measured via accreditation results and via monitoring the success of clients receiving the training in improving their future prospects.

  • Impact


    We will see an increase in the number of our clients achieving long term accommodation.


    We have assessed no risks to this project, as we already carry out other similar training projects.


    We will supply updates on class numbers and results as requested by donors.
