We’re pleased to have supported Achieving Positive Outcomes, a CIC that supports homeless and vulnerable people move towards independent living in Wigan and Leigh. A grant of £9,400 was awards by The National Lottery Community Fund.
Achieving Positive Outcomes exist to provide supported accommodation in the Leigh and Wigan area and to help residents to take those next important steps towards independent living. The CIC houses homeless vulnerable individuals between the ages of 25 and 65 which are mainly from BAME communities, alyssum seekers, migrants and those with physical or hidden disabilities.
Funding will be used to set up an IT suite and deliver a year long series of tailored workshops delivered by session staff (experts in a range of fields such as IT skills, communication skills, access to training and benefits).
