The Money House (TMH) helps young people in, or about to move into housing, manage their money and remain independent.
Participants gain practical financial and digital skills to pay their rent, bills and living costs whilst making informed choices about their future. Attendees can receive a Level 1 award in Money Management from ABC’s Entry Into Work Employability Module.
Sessions take place in a fully kitted out flat, not a classroom. It looks and feels like a typical flat that young people would aspire to live in when they get their own tenancy. Our experts help them become more confident about money and living on their own by providing real-life skills in a unique setting that brings financial education to life and helps prevent homelessness.
At TMH there are no lectures. Interactive games and activities involve young people in every aspect of their learning. Our Education Officers are young, trained, tested and enthusiastic, and it shows in the feedback we get from all the young people who attend.
A virtual version is also available
The ClementJames Centre welcomes you to our wellbeing programme. Take part in a variety of one-off workshops, ongoing activities and events at our friendly centre. A great chance for you to build confidence, relax and connect with others. We look forward to seeing you soon!
We also provide specific emotional support to children and young people who were directly or indirectly affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. This includes weekly art therapy sessions and counselling.
The aim of the project is to support ex-offenders who are in employment to 'level up'. Levelling up could be anything from an increase in wages, a change in contractual hours, promotion to a change in shift pattern, change in location or the consideration of a client's religious beliefs. Whatever makes the client's job 'better' for them, Level up aims to support them with it, hopefully improving their employment situation.
Peer Circles offers practical and emotional support to reduce social isolation, build skills and confidence, and work towards employment.
The project is specifically aimed at people who are highly marginalised and need help to address multiple and complex issues including homelessness, a history of offending, substance misuse and difficulties engaging with mainstream services. A women's service is also available for women with complex needs.
A key strength of Peer Circles is using our peer-led approach. The Peer Advisers have first-hand experience of overcoming disadvantages themselves and really understand what their clients are going through.
