St Giles Trust
St Giles is a charity using expertise and past experiences to empower people who are not getting the help they need or who are hard to engage.
We believe everyone has the power to turn their life around, no matter what their situation. Central to our work is the belief that people with ‘lived experience’ of issues such as poverty, crime, homelessness and addictions hold the key to positive change in others. Many of our employees and volunteers have been in similar situations and use their past experiences to inspire and support those living through it right now.
We have been successfully delivering a professional development programme over the past 17 years which enables those with lived experience to demonstrate and further develop their skills and experience. Through this programme we empower and encourage each person to overcome the adversity they face, from the outside world and from within themselves. We inspire them to solve the problems they face, think big for themselves and their families and help them to build internal resilience and a place in society.
