The People in Crisis Project is a partnership between Home-Start, Key and Citizens Advice.

The Project is funded by The Big Lottery Fund and aims to draw on the strengths and experiences of people facing hardship and crisis so that they can overcome immediate difficulties and be ready for future opportunities and challenges.

We hope that people who have experienced hardship crisis are better able to improve their circumstances and that people who are at risk of experiencing hardship crisis are better able to plan for the future.

As part of our support for families, Life Skill Development Workshops run regularly, encouraging positive steps towards Well-Being. These include craft and cooking activities, developing a skill set and sharing experiences, developing friendships.
