KCAH supports primarily single people who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless or who are experiencing serious problems with private landlords.

 

What they use the grant for:

KCAH used the Love Kingston grant to part-fund the position of an Outreach Worker who has been working on a tenancy sustainment programme, helping clients stay in their homes.  The grant also funded the Cook & Eat Programme at the Job Club Giving advice on health eating.

 

Quote from an attendee at the Job Club:

 

Without the help of KCAH, I would have not have had so much access to a phone and also free internet access to apply for jobs online. They also helped me to update my CV and were incredibly supportive. I could not afford a mobile phone for potential employers to contact me so KCAH gave me a pay-as-you-go. One time, they helped me with my travel fare to get to a job interview. I am now in full-time employment.
