A programme which helps homeless people and family carers get back into work has received a £30,000 boost.
Axiom Crossroads Care has been granted £30,000 by the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to fund its
Preparation into Employment programme, which will be provided across Peterborough and Cambridgeshire.
The programme hopes to provide homeless people, carers and former carers with training to help them find work within the health and social care sector.
As part of the charity’s submission, they compiled a short film showing the types of people the programme will help, including former servicemen who are now sleeping rough and family carers who are struggling to find work after devoting years caring for a loved one.
