St Martins is celebrating after being awarded £92,244 in government funding, distributed through The National Lottery Community Fund, to support its work with homeless people in Norfolk.
Kevin is a local historian who delivers popular walking tours of the city and was delighted to do a bit of digging for us and find out about the history of the site on Recorder Road.
Jimmy was staying in one of St Martins' homelessness projects when the country went into lockdown. “All of a sudden I was dumped with all of my emotions. All my unresolved issues. It had a massive effect on me.”
St Martins Head of Residential Care Iain Boag published a book exploring how to provide the best, person-centred support for the most marginalized people living in registered care. In it he introduces the Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE) framework as an innovative tool that care workers can use to improve their daily work practice.
