This new section of our website is dedicated to education, training and employment services for homeless and socially excluded people. It features good practice guidance and considerations for a wide range of services and activities, from engagement and stabilisation activities, to volunteering, placements, self-employment and social enterprise. It is designed for homelessness service workers and managers to find resources to support and complement their work, including innovative ideas and tried and tested schemes.
This project has been made possible by funding from OSW,the national charity that tackles homelessness by supporting individuals to access education, training, volunteering and employment, under their Tackling Multiple Disadvantage in London project, which receives funding from the European Social Fund.
This section of the site is divided into the following chapters.
The Equal TMD section covers the various projects that form the Tackling Multiple Disadvantage (TMD) London programme, administered by OSW, with Equal European funding. The projects are pilot projects that aim to reduce multiple disadvantage by improving employability, and the findings and good practice resources that came out of these projects form case studies and examples that are very pertinent to working with homeless and socially excluded people around education, training and employment.
Other services and projects from around the country are featured elsewhere in the site.
Some content is not yet available. The site will be regularly updated, and comments and suggestions for content, including good practice case studies are very welcome. Please email the project coordinator.
