Help­ing home­less

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

A CHAR­ITY launched by a West York­shire-based HR and em­ploy­ment law com­pany to help home­less and re­cently home­less peo­ple across Leeds and Kirklees back into em­ploy­ment has re­ceived en­dorse­ment from Leeds City Coun­cil and sup­port from Leeds City Hous­ing.

The Howarth Foun­da­tion, es­tab­lished by Cleck­heaton-based Howarths in Fe­bru­ary, has re­ceived the en­dorse­ment af­ter re­cruit­ing 20 re­gional com­pa­nies onto its ‘Busi­ness Build­ing Fu­tures’ pro­gramme in less than 12 months.

The pro­gramme sees The Howarth Foun­da­tion work with the part­ner com­pa­nies to pro­vide skills train­ing, work ex­pe­ri­ence and em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­di­vid­u­als who have been iden­ti­fied as ready to re-en­ter full or part-time em­ploy­ment.

The en­dorse­ment from Leeds City Coun­cil will al­low the char­ity to use the coun­cil’s crest across mar­ket­ing and pro­mo­tional ma­te­rial.

In­di­vid­u­als who are on the wait­ing list for a coun­cil owned home in Leeds and sat­isfy the re­quire­ments of the Busi­ness Build­ing Fu­tures pro­gramme can also be given pri­or­ity by Leeds City Hous­ing.
