We also seek to reduce homelessness, improve health and wellbeing and strengthen community assets.||Over the years, as we have worked with and supported people living in deprived communities we have recognised interconnections and inconsistencies. For example, on the one hand there is a shortage of affordable homes of quality and a shortage of construction workers, yet there is unemployment and the need to create job and training opportunities for young men, women and older people. There is the inability of the public sector to provide required funding due to cutbacks yet there are investors actively seeking ways to invest that provide both a return and a social outcome. We have also encountered at first hand the impact of these disconnections: Homelessness Unemployment Poor Health and Wellbeing Benefits dependency Anti-social behaviour Punitive Debt burden Family stresses Low educational attainment Community disruption Inter-generational issues As a social enterprise committed to improving lives and communities we have been exploring ways in which these disparate yet connected strands can be approached. It is this knowledge and experience that we bring to bear and use to inform the projects that we would like to develop and deliver – in partnership.|
