Accommodation for Work
Overcoming unemployment can be a big challenge, particularly if you are homeless.
BHT’s Accommodation for Work project aims to help homeless people off the streets and into employment and independent accommodation. It is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
Working with people who feel they are ready to make a positive change and move their lives forward, the project offers temporary shared accommodation and support with work and learning.
Each resident has a keyworker, who works with them to develop an individual employment plan which focuses on skills, training requirements and employment goals. Residents use their time at the project to engage in paid or voluntary work, training courses, or work placements.
My whole way of thinking has changed since moving into the Accommodation for Work Project. I always thought I was on my own, but speaking to people I've realised there is a lot of help out there, and that's the important thing to know. Everyone needs help at times.
Accessing the Service
We don’t generally take self-referrals.

Based on combined learning from the Accommodation for Work project and others, we have developed the Choice Training and Development service. This offers training and development opportunities to homeless support projects across Brighton and Hove. One of the resources developed by this service is the Choice Opportunities Directory, which gives details of the work and learning providers that we work with.
