why we’re here
The Faith Hope and Enterprise Company Ltd. is a Registered Charity which provides supported housing for some of the most marginalised members of society. Their exclusion may be due to general homelessness issues, drug or alcohol misuse, former offending behaviour, mental health concerns or learning disabilities. We provide a range of mentoring and support services to help people build their confidence and self esteem. Residents have a regular programme of assessment and review with a variety of activities that help them develop their life skills.
what we offer
We have accommodation in Ashbourne, Belper, and Derby. Anyone who is single and homeless can apply to us – they do not need to be referred by another agency.
The support we provide happens in a variety of ways according to the needs of each individual.
We arrange a variety of social events throughout the year for people to be part of. These times together help to establish a strong sense of friendship and community among residents.
Faith Hope and Enterprise aim to help people get back on their feet and begin to live independently again. We have a staged process to help them do this.
Our aim is to support residents in the process of getting back on their feet and moving on to more independent accommodation. We offer a range of initiatives and activities to enable this and their Personal Development Plan is part of the terms and conditions of their accommodation.
We work with several other organisations to help people improve their mental and physical health, overcome addiction, access appropriate benefits, education, training and employment. We help people to re-establish contact with family, improve their confidence and self-esteem, learn new skills and develop a healthy network of friends. We provide practical support around budgeting, shopping, cooking, running and maintaining a home. Our aim is to help residents to achieve their goals and live more independently.
We arrange a variety of social events throughout the year for people to be part of. We have taken our residents indoor go-karting, quad biking and paint-balling. We also organised two trips to see Derby County Football Club in evening matches which included a stadium tour before kick off.
In 2018 randd UK did a sponsored 10k run and sky-dive to raise money for Faith Hope and Enterprise. We thought that since the money had been raised in such an adventurous way, we would spend it on a little adventure of our own.
In the past we’ve taken people to Twycross Zoo for the day and visited the National Memorial Arboretum. This has helped families to enjoy excellent days out together which would otherwise not have been possible for them and for residents to learn about the world around them.
Every two or three months, each house or group of flats has an organised lunch together when people are able to contribute to the shape and future of Faith Hope and Enterprise. These times together help to establish a strong sense of friendship and community among residents and provide valuable connections and memories for them.
