What is it?
Making use of a redundant building, the Trust, in partnership with NHS Norfolk, have created a fit for purpose resource centre - Under-1-Roof. The ground floor is home to City Reach - a team of health professionals providing primary health care services to homeless people and other vulnerable adults. There is a Training and Development Centre on the first floor.

What happens there?
The Training and Development Centre was conceived to provide the Trust’s service users, past and present, with access to work opportunities.
St. Martins has learnt that, in order to make the resettlement process for our service users sustainable they need to be occupied or working. For those with skills, qualifications and a consistent history of employment, their needs and expectations are more simply met. But for those with few skills, no qualifications and a fragmented track record of working, life can be very different.
Although the emphasis of the project is clearly focused on providing people with skills that can help them compete for jobs in the greater community, not all training sessions will necessarily be work related. Much of what will be on offer will be informal learning to help develop confidence, build self esteem and inspire, prior to taking up work based training. These sessions can also support people achieve basic skills such as literacy and numeracy.
