Business Action on Homelessness

Ready for Work

Job Support Network

BAOH is an organisation dedicated to help people who have been homeless for any reason; to find work.

The ‘Ready to Work’ programme, managed by BAOH is designed for this. Through various workshops and work placements candidates are encouraged to seek gainful employment.

The dedicated and friendly team monitor clients throughout their course and make job-hunting a positive experience. About half the potential job candidates find work.

A range of local companies endorse the scheme including, The Hilton and BHCC.

Bunty Dann the BAOH Manager said: “When everyone puts in the effort, takes a chance and makes a commitment, it is a win-win situation for we all gain-the person, the hostel agencies, the local authority and our city as a whole”

There are referrals from Firm Foundations, at BHT who come to the Action Reviews

The Job Support Network , meets on the Third Wednesday of every month. There is a chance to catch-up with others on the course and a salad meal is provided.

The evening starts with a coffee and greetings, then there is a short exercise

programme to encourage the circulation and mental-well being. This is followed by a short talk from a relevant organisation such as ‘ Creative Futures’.

Work breakdown follows with persons contributing their recent work experiences whether positive or negative. The meal follows and a lively discussion often takes place.

For attending on a regular basis at least three times, a prize of cinema tickets to The Duke of Yorks Cinema is given…

Thankyou Emma, Bunty and Pip.

we are two people living in Brighton who have both been through the 'hostel' system. I (Chris) have been street homeless, I am currently a recovering alcoholic living in a privately rented flat. I (Gordon) have a degree of media studies from University of Westminster. I've had many psychological problems, but am now nearly recovered. I live on my own in a privately rented flat.
