The Fair Work Fair Pay Foundation - Our News

Support from the Trussell Trust Food Bank

“The Trussell Trust Food Bank welcomes the deployment of the Fair Work Fair Pay Foundation charity because it aims to restore dignity through helping people find gainful employment reducing dependency on welfare support and therefore reducing the demand on charities such as the Food Banks.”

Jeremy Ravn Trussell Trust Food Bank Network Director, 24th September 2012

Fence Building was the Charities First Fairwork Project

Fence Building was the Charities First Fairwork Project

The first volunteer for the charity built a picket fence and constructed an outside table for a local school. The school provided the materials, some transport and meals. The volunteer kept his expenses to a minimum and he cycled the 24 mile return journey to the school benefitting from the exercise. The school was given a ‘zero invoice’ with the option to make a

financial donation to the charity. Ten pounds was charged for use of the volunteers tools. The charity was delighted by the financial donation received from the school.

Unfair Demand on Charity for the Homeless

A Christian charity, that provides homes for the homeless, reports an increase in homelessness as a direct result of people being sanctioned under the Mandatory Work Activity Law. A member of the charity said, ‘Trying to help these homeless people is placing a great demand on our limited resources’.

Ethos Statement

The mission of the charity is to help the unemployed claiming state benefits into gainful employment and so help relieve poverty and restore dignity. Those who find employment or create new employment opportunities will benefit financially and spiritually becoming good role models to their families, friends and neighbours. We plan to do this through a growing network of local church based centres and in such a way that people can experience and respond to the love of God.

Ethos Statement

‘Helping the unemployed claiming state benefits into gainful employment.’

This charity empowers those who want to stop claiming benefits by finding or creating gainful employment in the first instance by actively seeking voluntary work from and for their neighbours. These neighbours may choose to make a financial donation to the charity and any donations would be used to support the volunteers in practical ways. Volunteers may continue to claim state benefits until they have found or established gainful employment at which time they may stop claiming benefits. By achieving sustainable gainful employment the vices and associated financial demands linked with unemployment may be reduced. The volunteers and those finding employment will gain self-esteem with the opportunity to contribute positively both socially and financially within society. The work of the charity and its volunteers is based on the Christian principle ‘Love God and love your neighbours as you wish to be loved your self.’  We pray that a growth in Christian values will result from volunteers interacting with their neighbours within diverse communities first locally and then nationally.

Love God and love your neighbours as you wish to be loved yourself
