Tackling the Issue
Newcastle and the surrounding area have a small number of rough sleepers but a large number of food banks. This suggests that there are more low-income individuals living in Newcastle.
This project aims to help low-income and homeless beneficiaries with access to job opportunities and short-term support such as skills classes, suit hire and funds for interview travel
Enactus Northumbria is currently consulting with Gateshead Council Employment Services who work towards employment and enterprise support for local people.
We plan to help one person become self-sufficient and use this experience to extrapolate the service to other beneficiaries in the long term.
