IMPORTANT SEASONAL NOTICE.

Standard

It’s that time of year again & I’m looking for volunteers & paid staff for the shelter we provide outreach for over the Xmas period.

If you have experience of outreach/assessing clients or similar or if you just want to volunteer in other ways for when we run the shelter entirely on our own please message me on Facebook page or via our Twitter account or better still drop me an email at paul.eco@piliontrust.org.uk & we’ll take it from there!

Cheers, I look forward to hearing from you all. Paul.

World Homelessness Day 2014

Standard

whd-box-200[1]

 

10.10.2014 – We ask for everyone around the world to take a moment out their day, troubles, woes, fears etc., and think of the millions of people around the world who are homeless and rough sleeping tonight.

London Homelessness has risen by over 6%. The October rains have arrived and the winter cold is coming. How many people will die this winter on the streets of London?

No matter how hard life seems at the moment, there is still hope as you are not homeless. Escalating house prices, inflated rentals, no council stock, zero Local Authority help and the Government talks about Affordable Housing?

 

What does that look like in reality?

The Pilion Training Centre

In association with The Pilion Trust, our new Training Centre, offering Asdan accredited awards, has been opened in Highbury. We are working with young people who have experienced homelessness. The aim of the project is to develop self-esteem through a program of training and development. The Personal Progress qualification is being used to underpin and validate the individual progression of each of the young People

We plan to develop this project in the coming year to work with anyone who has experienced homelessness and disadvantage that would benefit from a combined employability and self-development program.

The Pilion Trust is a Charity that works with marginalised and vulnerable young people, adults and families. Across all of our Services in 2012-2013, we advised, advocated and supported over 5,000 people and families to be able to improve their lifestyles.

Pilion Trust is based in the borough of Islington but works across London Boroughs.
