Jenny Archer-Power is one of a group of runners raising cash for entrenched rough sleepers by participating in the Manchester 10k run.
The community director for CGM CRC is the head of probation for Oldham and Rochdale, and also leads on the service’s approach to delivering Integrated Through the Gate services to people leaving prison.
She is raising cash along with colleagues from across the criminal justice, health, housing and homelessness services in Greater Manchester in an event organised by the GM Homes Partnership to reflect the collaboration across services currently undertaken to end rough sleeping. The Partnership works with the most entrenched rough sleepers through strength based, personalised, intensive support to help them re-engage with society.
Cash raised will be put into a ‘Personalisation Fund’ which homeless people can use to help them realise forgotten ambitions, set up new homes, access accommodation or return to education, volunteering and work.
Jenny said: “The fund helps GM Partnership’s service users achieve fantastic results and I am proud to support their work.
“The people we supervise, particularly those leaving prison, can face an uncertain future and their ability to access support provided by the likes of the GM Partnership can play an integral role in their rehabilitation.”
