A snapshot overview of our achievements over the last financial year (April 2017-March 2018) shows that St Giles Trust helped 24,982 people through our community and prison-based services – a steady year-on-year growth.
Last year also saw over 500 of our clients embark on Peer Advisor training – our best year ever – and over 100 of them progress into paid work.
Alongside this, our teams helped:
- 4,793 people into permanent housing
- 795 people into paid work
- 287 young people safely exit gang activity
- 1,191 people build a positive social network such as re-engaging with family
The split of male and female clients was 85% and 15% respectively, showing an increase on the number of women being helped by St Giles Trust. 26% were aged under-25 with a growing number of under-16s, indicating of St Giles Trust’s growing work helping vulnerable children and young people out of county lines.
