Partnerships are important to PRHA. We think that they are a stepping stone to improving the lives of our residents and also the local community that we are a part of, which is why we aim to work or collaborate with those partnerships that have a similar ethos to our own, helping some of the most vulnerable in society to thrive.
The Reading, Writing and ESOL Project
Providence Row Housing Association (PRHA) and The Reading, Writing and ESOL Project (RWEP) have collaborated to support people with experience of homelessness to access literacy and English language support while improve their wellbeing, skills and access to further learning, training and employment opportunities.
Sarah Halsey, the teacher and Project Manager incorporates a trauma informed approached to her practice thereby creating a safe learning space and connecting with the learners. The pilot project has been running since December 2020 in three of our schemes and so far has supported 10 learners.
