In Praise Of
The House of St Barnabas
We’re absolutely delighted to be working with The House of Barnabas again this year, raising money through the sale of our ‘Very Merry’ Xmas Crackers as well as becoming a partner in their training academy.
The House of Barnabas is a London charity pledged to break the cycle of homelessness. Their approach is driven by a social purpose to create a future where lasting employment is a reality for those affected by homelessness and that by gaining and maintaining paid work they are able to achieve lasting independence and security.
They run an Employment Academy that’s fully integrated into their social business, a not-for-profit members’ club, right in the middle of Soho, housed in a beautiful Grade 1 Georgian building. The academy offers 360° support, providing accredited qualifications from City & Guilds, work experience, real job opportunities and mentoring. They have an amazing 80% success rate with their graduates moving into work and are able to tell some truly inspiring stories of personal triumph as a result.
