Skills Enterprise addresses the issues underlying poverty and social exclusion in Newham, offering employment training, a job club, computer training, English language learning, welfare and debt advice, food bank support, social activities and volunteering projects. 84% of those receiving financial advice from the organisation report being better able to manage their income and are happier as a result, and 16 of the 79 who have attended the job club have achieved employment. Skills Enterprise is using this grant from The Fore to double its staff capacity and expand from one to three venues. This will enable the organisation to support 1,000 people within two years.
