For housing providers

Whether it is helping you involve your tenants or deliver complex casework for vulnerable young people, we can help housing providers meet the diverse range of issues they often face.  The lived experience of our Peer Advisors means they are highly relatable, credible and will have shared the same experiences of living with and overcoming disadvantage.

We can help you involve your tenants, particularly those who may be vulnerable, isolated or experiencing multiple and complex needs. This could be to support project delivery, carry out audits, source feedback or to facilitate tenant involvement at events.

Do you wish to develop the skills of your tenants to enable them to offer peer support services? We can deliver short courses for your tenants such as the Learning to Advise course assured by City & Guilds and offer specifically tailored assured community champion courses.

It’s an excellent model. We have just had a real success story. One of my customers got a job after being a Peer Advisor. The project really gave her so much confidence she now says ‘I know how I got here and I am ready to help other people’. It’s really quite inspiring.

Feedback from housing provider

We offer staff training for those involved in delivering complex casework such as supporting young people involved in gangs and county lines exploitation. We also provide specialist training in trauma-informed delivery helping you to provide high quality services which engage people who have experienced adversity and trauma.

Our national network of Pantries can support any tenants and their families who are struggling financially. For a small weekly subscription, Pantry users can shop for fresh, nutritious food whilst benefitting from the advice and guidance services of our Peer Advisors who are on hand in the Pantry to provide support with underlying issues around poverty and unemployment.  Find out more here

If you are interested in working with us to establish a St Giles Pantry for your tenants please contact us.
