Striving to overcome social exclusion for disabled people who are homeless, The Vademecum Project by Good4You London-wide project receives over £290,000 from the Reaching Communities Fund. A vital new initiative, Good4You will provide homeless people who are disabled with access to mainstream disability services, such as free transport, sheltered jobs with long term disability support and disability benefits. The scheme, which will link up with organisations providing disability services, will work in partnership with beneficiaries to collate key information, such as medical reports and legal advice. It will also provide disability trained volunteers to accompany and support disabled people at job centre appointments, employment interviews, and meetings with landlords.

The funding allows Good4you to employ two disability case workers who each have a degree in Disability Studies.
