£20,000 over one year was awarded to Spires, a homeless day centre based in Streatham. The proposal is to continue partfunding a Volunteer Coordinator to develop and deliver both Access to Volunteering Training Programme and Adult Volunteers Skills Course. The courses are open to those people who are homeless, insecurely housed, unemployed (often on a long-term basis) and other economically disadvantaged Lambeth residents. The project aims to increase the employability of participants through addressing key skills gaps in order to gain new skills, achieve relevant work experience and build on confidence, listening and self-esteem
