People At Risk

Grants have been made to organisations that help people at risk of homelessness to obtain support, secure permanent accommodation, regain economic independence and reconnect with important family and social networks.

In view of wide-ranging changes to support to people from the benefits system and the re-shaping of local government social services, the Trust has been particularly concerned at the needs of young homeless people and women at risk. In line with the Trust’s priorities on sustainable development and low carbon energy use, it has also supported projects to address fuel poverty.

Over the years the Trust has provided considerable help to projects where there is awareness of the value for people in cultivating their sense of personal identity, of aspiration for life and livelihood, and of belonging among family and friends.

Women at the Well

It provides emergency accommodation, crisis support and arranges referrals to other support agencies and can provide assistance to women who are seeking to exit prostitution, and those who have previously exited but are experiencing difficulties in their daily lives.
