Overview of work
Often the people Jericho support have lived experience of homelessness, mental ill health, addiction, disability, modern slavery or the criminal justice system. In other cases they have struggled with the education system, experienced a difficult home life, or have low confidence and self-esteem. Jericho operates a diverse network of social enterprises and social projects which give people a caring, supportive employer who will give them a chance to succeed in work and in life, and create positive change in their communities.
