Details

The Skills, Training, Innovation and Employment (STRIVE) pilot was a London based pre-employment and skills programme targeted at single homeless people claiming Jobseekers Allowance (JSA), Employment Support Allowance (ESA) or equivalent legacy sickness benefits.

STRIVE was delivered by 2 specialist homelessness providers - St Mungo’s and Crisis Skylight - who were funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and the then Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to support a target of 100 people in the first 2 years of the programme.

STRIVE began in April 2014, and was initially funded for 2 years but awarded an additional third year’s funding bringing it to a close in April 2017.
