THE SILKWORTH TRUST HAS TAKEN ONE STEP FURTHER TO OUR TARGET OF A THERAPUTIC GREEN VILLAGE IN THE ESSEX AND EAST LONDON AREA. 

OUR WAREHOUSE/SHOP AT HAROLD HILL FINALY OPENED ON THE 6TH OF OCTOBER. THE PURPPOSE OF THE WAREHOUSE IS TO FUND AND RETRAIN VULNERABLE PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD HOMELESSNESS/ADDICTION/MENTAL HEALTH OR OTHER SOCIAL PROBLEMS. 

OUR WAREHOUSE ALSO HAS A FOOD/CLOTHING BANK AS WELL AS A FREE FURNITURE BANK FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TO RECOURSE TO PERSONAL OR PUBLIC FUNDS. WE SUPPORT THE WEAKEST IN SOCIETY FIRST THROUGH DONATIONS AND PERSONAL HELP. 

THE PEOPLE THAT WILL LIVE IN THE THERAPUTIC GREEN VILLAGE WILL DONATE THIER TIME AND ENERGY TO THE GROWTH OF OTHERS. WE ASK THAT PEOPLE WHO JOIN US DO NOT COLLECT ANY GOVERNMENT BENEFITS AND START TO WORK FOR A LIVING. IN RETURN THEY ARE GIVEN THIER OWN SPACE TO LIVE, FOOD, TOILETRIES AND A SMALL CHARITABLE STIPEND ALLOWANCE OF £35 FOR PERSONAL PURCHASES. 

THIS IS NO EASY CHALLENGE BUT HELPS TO RAISE PEOPLES SENSE OF SELF AND WORTH. PEOPLES CONFIDENCE AND SELF BELEIF ARE QUICKLY RESTORED BUT WE DO UNDERSTAND THAT SOME PEOPLE HAVE DEEPER PROBLEMS. EACH PERSON WILL BE ALOCATED A QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED SOCIAL CARE WORKER WHO WILL HELP THEM TO ACCESS LOCAL SERVICES WHO CAN HELP THEM RESOLVE OR REACH A COMFORTABLE ;LEVEL WITH THIER SOCIAL ISSUES. 

OUR COMMUNITY WILL BE AN ABSTINANCE BASED SITE WITH A ZERO TOLERANCE TO DRUGS AND ALCOHOL. 

WE ALSO HAVE ACCESS TO OTHER EMPLOYTERS WHO ARE WILLING TO HELP RETRAIN AND RESKILL PEOPLE IN VARIOUS OTHER AREADS OF EMPLOYMENT SUCH AS WELDING, FORKLIFT DRIVING, CONFIDENCE COURSES, COOKING, ADMINISTRATION TO NAME A FEW. 

WE BELIVE THAT EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE AND EVERYONE OF OUR TEAM HAS HAD OR CARERED FOR SOMEONE WITH A HOMLESSNESS OR ADDICTION PROBLEM.
