GWR gets clients on the right track!
Huge thank you to Great Western Railway (GWR) for their incredible £5000 grant.
As a supporter, we're sure you'll know that Arc's support and services go beyond just accommodation. We know that a roof above someone's head can just be a starting point towards their recovery from homelessness. One area we focus on is learning and development and providing opportunities for our clients to upskill, gain qualifications, build confidence or simply have fun and try out new activities! As you can imagine, the pandemic put a hold on much of this work and since returning to some form of 'normality' we've been slowly reintroducing opportunities but with limitations due to cost.
That's why we were thrilled that Great Western Railway (GWR) saw value in this service and find it important to invest in local communities. GWR provided us with funding to relaunch this area of work and with an incredible £5000 grant, we can provide short courses, activities, resources and transport that are tailored to our clients' aims and interests.
We're excited to refocus on this and help our clients to reach their goals and create positive futures! Thank you GWR!
GWR Business Development Portfolio Director, Tom Pierpoint, said: “Our Community Fund is a fantastic opportunity for us to invest in projects that really make a difference to our customers and communities at a local level. Arc does fantastic work to house, support and enable homeless people to maximise their potential and we’re delighted to provide funding to assist with its ongoing projects.”
