ESE is proud to support the charity Gipsil, working to provide support for young people in the community. They have recently refurbished a small block of flats on the Gipton estate, Leeds, to create four flats, an office, and a communal area. This project is primarily for young people who are leaving the care system and may not yet be ready or have the skills to live independently.
They will be supported to gain life skills that will enable them to move on into their own tenancy in the future, where they will be offered floating support until they are settled within the community. ESE have provided three Dell Inspiron 3000 laptops to enable the young residents to look for jobs/house rentals.
Gipsil was founded through Flagship to support vulnerable young people, the homeless and ex-offenders. They have almost 100 years’ experience working with excluded groups in Leeds and the issues faced by young people at risk, including; young offenders, care leavers, and teenage parents.
