The Fine & Country Foundation now supports another 155 homeless and disadvantaged people in Bedford through a £3,370 grant that will provide training, workshops and household goods to vulnerable people. 

The £3,370 grant to King’s Arms Project will supply white goods for people living in independent accommodation as part of the Move-On Housing project, and transport for 140 service users to access training courses and workshops in the Pathways to Employment programme. 

King’s Arms Project welcomed four clients into their new accommodation service in June. The building is recently decorated and refurbished with part of the grant donation from The Fine & Country Foundation. Work continues in the kitchen and other bedrooms. Due to the high levels of homelessness in the Bedford area, King’s Arms have opened once they have been renovated and equipped. 

Steve Westwood, Fundraising Officer from the King’s Arms Project said: “King’s Arms Project has seen great change in the lives of our clients, through these services supported by The Fine & Country Foundation. One client was given access to employment in upholstery, following the support of the Pathways to Employment team. Another client has grown so much in confidence and well-being, that they has become noticed not only by the residents and staff from the King’s Arms Project, but also by external agencies. 

“We are delighted that we are able to expand our capacity, support more clients into safe and supported accommodation and access employment opportunities. Thank you so much Fine & Country Foundation for helping to make this possible.”

The Pathways to Employment programme continues to experience high demand.  The course range has expanded to include: fitness, the Jobs Club, money and finance, skills training, well-being and sports programmes.
