Project Support Worker: Empowering Women at Just Works
Next week we are teaming up with the Volunteering Office at the University of Sheffield Students’ Union to raise awareness of homelessness, as part of their 4 weeks of action.
Sheffield Eagles can announce that the Cathedral Archer Project as the club’s chosen charity partner for 2018.
The Cathedral Archer Project (CAP) are really pleased to announce that Tech Systemz as their newest supporters.
Tech Systemz Limited is based in the Sheffield area and can deliver the right IT solution for any business. Priding themselves on having a responsive, flexible and personal approach with each and every one of their customers.
As well as joining their popular Breakfast Club which ensures approximately 60/70 homeless and vulnerable of Sheffield get a hearty breakfast each morning, Tech Systemz will also be providing IT support to Just Works.
Just Works, a Cathedral Archer Project initiative, uses a holistic approach to development through employment, support and healthy living. They develop health and wellbeing through a range of activity including regular counselling, yoga & sporting activities. Crucially, the innovative programme also incorporates a graduated exposure to work through paid supported employment. They deliver cleaning & gardening contracts and have in-house businesses including “Printed By Us” where they produce prints, t-shirts and mugs designed by local artists. Just Works accepts referrals from all support agencies in Sheffield.
Terry Murphy, Just Works Programme Manager said “Just Works is the final piece in the jigsaw of CAPs goal of supporting vulnerable adults in Sheffield from sleeping bag to employment and happy and fulfilling lives. We are moving towards a sustainable model with all of the surplus income generated from our service contracts and microbusinesses being reinvested back into the enterprise. Support in kind from organisations like Tech Systemz helps us get closer to achieving this goal.”
Tracy Viner, (CAP) Marketing and Development Manager added, “This is very exciting times for our partnership with Tech Systemz as they understand that for the people who use the project to achieve the chance of employment we need to support them through all stages of their journey and by providing breakfast at CAP and IT support to Just works they are doing just that.”
