The Porch trained members in kitchen skills resulting in four members getting jobs

W Lucy & Co helped us fund a small project at The Porch last September. The funding request was for just £2,500, to supplement an EU social grant of approx £1,500, obtained via Oxford City Council. The project was to give kitchen work experience and training to four individuals and help them to start applying for jobs. The outcome was that 13 homeless or vulnerably housed people completed the programme and started looking for kitchen work, and four of them have already gained jobs.

Even a small amount of funding can make a difference to people's lives.
