Telereal Trillium has named Broadway Homelessness and Support as its newest charity partner and will be funding a mentoring programme to help homeless people in London on their journey to employment.
Telereal Trillium’s support will fund an administrator role as well as costs for the programme, and employees will have the opportunity to become mentors to homeless people and those who have recently been homeless. Mentors will provide regular one-on-one support to help build confidence, motivation and communication skills, to enable clients to achieve their work and training goals. Mentors from other organisations will also be involved in the programme, enabling even more Broadway clients to be helped.
Susan Cain, head of corporate responsibility at Telereal Trillium said: "We are delighted to add Broadway to the group of charity partners we support. Broadway’s work aligns with our overarching community vision – helping people into the workplace – and we believe that through the mentoring scheme, our people can make a significant impact on the lives of formerly homeless people."
Sir Leigh Lewis, chair of Broadway’s trustees, added: "Our mentoring programme has always been very successful and we believe that Telereal Trillium’s support will ensure that we can help even more people realise their work aspirations and become economically independent. We are extremely grateful to Telereal Trillium who share our vision of helping people move from the streets to a home, and who know from their own experience that mentoring and securing work is a major part of this. Without their support the programme simply could not run."
Broadway works with more than 9,000 people a year and provides a full range of services to help people find accommodation, improve their physical and mental health, gain training and employment, and to live successful, independent lives.
