Turning need into demand. I’ve talked about it before. Just because of all the reports we read about homelessness and its causes, it doesn’t mean that what we do is running off the shelf. Money is tight out there!
Like any business we have no right to exist and should exist only because we achieve our mission – and not for people’s jobs, egos or vanity projects.
This can sound ruthless, but in a tight sector it’s important to keep on mission. Only with this focus can we be the best we can possibly be. And all our people deserve no less.
Progress is slow. Repeat customers a must. This is Norfolk, not London. Reputation is everything.
So we’re thrilled to be working with North Norfolk District Council over the next year to deliver nine Tenancy & Independent Living Skills Plus (TILS+) courses.
Like most local authorities they have seen a rise in homelessness and it is exactly this population we will be supporting and preventing too! To develop the necessary knowledge, skills and resilience to live independently sometimes has to be taught.
Over the year we can evaluate our impact on those that have moved into their tenancies and created that safe and secure home that everyone deserves.
For all the marketing, impact reporting, pilot courses and more that we do, this piece of work came down to trust and relationships. These take time in our sectors and we cannot wait to take this partnership to the next level.
