2 Way Tenancy Solutions awarded over £16,000 of funding


2 Way Tenancy Solutions work with hard to reach individuals who have failed to engage with services, be it housing, health and other support. They've been awarded £16,160.74 of European Social Fund money, through the Gateshead Goes Local programme.  

The money will go towards extending their Financial Capability Programme which provides a range of solutions including face to face tenant interventions, training and support and help with the transition of Universal Credit.

Speaking about the funding, Itai Mabvute, Project Manager said: "We are excited to have been awarded funding through Gateshead Goes Local. This will allow us to extend our 2 Way Employment and Financial Capability Programme which engages with people with complex needs that are far removed from the labour market. As an organisation this funding is very important to us as it allows us to reach groups at risk of falling through the system."

Established by the European Union, the European Social Fund helps local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support skills development, employment and job creation, social inclusion and local community regenerations.
