Our Newham Rough sleepers programme engaged with people in the Borough who were homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Giving people access to our Bounce Backs case managers at the NEWday Centre in East Ham, we offered embedded support in the community. This included 1-2-1 meetings to discuss issues such as safeguarding concerns, complex needs & additional conditions as well as IAG support with a focus on education, training (including pathways onto our own courses) and employment – brokering opportunities, setting up job interviews and work trials.
We additionally liaised with local Caseworkers supporting accredited self-directed learning and worked with programme partners providing additional support including accommodation & immigration guidance. Our aim was to get people into work and secure employment.
