Ferry Project's success can be seen in the regional and national recognition we receive, but more importantly in how we have transformed people's lives.
The Ferry Project are changing lives, each and every day. We’re tackling the stigma associated with homelessness and helping those who come through our doors, to get back on their feet and move on with their lives, independently.
We’re proud to announce that our Job Café has secured the funding to run, open to anyone looking to develop their skills, change a career or get involved in further training. Last year we were able to support 928 individuals, with 580 reporting as "work ready" and 147 gaining employment. The Job Café runs every Friday from 10am to 12pm at the Queen Mary Centre.
The Queen Mary Centre has continued to grow, we’re seeing community groups flourish, services increase and more and more individuals attending support and recreational activities that Wisbech was once without. The centre is continuing to bring in business and offer space and facilities to the locals.
Our pride resides in our clients. Each with their own challenges, they battle through to increase their skills and confidence and with our structured support, we see positive life changes. If it wasn’t for the determination, perserverance and willingness to be supported of those who walk through our doors, we would not have a success story to tell.
