  • Need

    Need

    58i is a fast-growing Nottingham based charity, established in 2005 by Christians with a vision to tackle the root causes of poverty and exclusion and to empower our clients with the tools needed to succeed. The social problems we aim to tackle as an organisation are those that lead people into a life of poverty and then those that keep them entrenched there. These include poor parenting skills, lack of education and medical care, debt, homelessness, family breakdown and substance addiction.

    Solution

    Our work is split into 3 categories: early intervention, breaking cycles of poverty & international development. Our intervention work consists of support with youth homelessness (Nightstop). Our breaking cycles work involves supporting the homeless and drug & alcohol addicts (Rally), and debt management (Change Debt Advice). We also partner with an international development work called The King’s Village Project based in Ghana.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    58i has one simple aim; to transform the lives of those trapped in social poverty and exclusion.

    Activities

    » Our early intervention work- Nottingham Nightstop- aims to intervene to prevent vulnerable young adults from slipping into poverty.
    » Our Rally and Change Debt Advice projects aim to break the cycle of poverty and help people make positive steps forward.
    » Our international development work- the King's Village Project, is in Ghana and includes a hospital, school, nutrition centre and community outreach.

    Success will be in the form of individual lives changed; those that overcome the root issues underpinning their problems. Each project will also have specific targets of success.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Each project has a number of long term aims that will be measured through effective monitoring and evaluation. These include the number of clients successfully referred to rehab, the number of young people kept off the streets and thus the associated threats and the number of clients freed from debt.
    58i's long term changes are harder to demonstrate beyond the example of lives changed and the stories of those freed from a life of poverty and isolation.

    Risk

    58i faces a number of risks as an organisation and our 18 page risk assessment form describes how we plan to deal with such risks (available upon request).
