*Defined by the administrative boundaries of the county of Surrey. The boundaries exclude the London boroughs of Croydon, Kingston, Richmond and Sutton. Young people temporarily resident closely outside the Surrey borders with substantial and current roots in Surrey can also be considered. Please also note that the Surrey Young People’s Fund has been set up as a funder of last resort.
After deciding upon the course I wrote to OUSET explaining my situation and within a few months I was registered on the first of six modules. I worked through the diagnostic quiz to help me prepare. Haven Distribution (books to prisoners) sent me a general textbook that I needed and I stocked up on paper, pens, highlighters from the canteen in readiness.
The Anchor Project has been set up to meet the needs of children and young people in affected families in any London borough, to help them recover from the trauma and upheaval they have experienced. These grants will be mainly targeted at families that have been forced to leave their homes due to domestic abuse and are at the rehousing or post-housing stages.
The Code of Guidance (a policy document which local authorities should refer to for guidance), sets out relevant factors regarding institutional background, such as the length of time a person was in care, or in prison or in the armed forces & whether the applicant has been able to obtain and/or maintain accommodation during that period. Unless institutionalisation can be proved, most prisoners will not be housed by the HPU unless they have an additional priority need. What housing advisors find is that most local authorities will look at whether the client has made themselves 'intentionally homeless' and whether they have a local connection to that borough at the first point of contact. Intentionally homeless in this context refers to someone who previously had a tenancy who either abandoned their property, or were evicted for non-payment of rent or anti-social behaviour. Prisoners often fall into this category of making themselves intentionally homeless for being absent from their home and usually unable to pay their rent, or evicted for breach of their tenancy conditions.
In London a number of boroughs have adopted a Pathway approach to making referrals for accommodation. Prison housing/resettlement teams can complete the Pathway’s referral forms and send these over and then the respective Pathway team should forward to suitable accommodation providers in their boroughs. Many boroughs require applicants to demonstrate a ‘local connection’. A local connection means the applicant has to prove that they have lived in the borough they are applying to for at least 6 months previously or have a family connection to that borough.
Almost all funders like to receive a progress report from their successful candidates, so do take the time to let them know how the funds were used. This report may include both successes and setbacks with your course or activity. Maintaining contact like this may place you in a better position to make a second application for money from the same funder at a later date. You will see some extracts from letters from successful candidates scattered throughout the directory.
If Docear does not work any more as it should, you can try deleting all settings. To do so, select “Open User Directory” in the ribbons, close Docear, and delete the content of the folder that has opened. Alternatively, use a file manager (e.g. Windows Explorer) and delete all files contained in (make a backup, just in case). Deleting this folder will not delete your mind-maps, PDF, or references (unless you explicitly stored your mind-maps etc. in the user directory, which you should not do).
In addition, you should change the following setting in the preferences. Otherwise, there will be some PDFs (those created as PDF/A) in which you cannot create annotations.

is the only PDF viewer that we can truly recommend, since it supports all the features that Docear requires. . It needs two settings to be changed to enable Docear to import highlighted text. Usually Docear automatically changes this setting. However, if Docear does not import highlighted text you created with PDF-XChange Viewer, enable these settings in the preferences of PDF-XChange Viewer.
If you activate this function, all your mind maps are stored on our server each time you save a mind map in Docear (of course, the original file remains on your computer). If you are not online at the time of saving, a copy is created and uploaded to our server the next time you are online. Your backups can be accessed through and you can not only access the latest version of your mind map but also all other revisions. That means, if you realize you made a mistake or you deleted a mind map by mistake, you can restore your mind map easily. In the future we plan to backup your reference data and PDFs as well, but for now only mind maps are stored on our server. If you use our backup feature, we will do some basic statistical analysis on your data. That means we will analyse how many users have how many mind maps (min, max, avg), how large mind maps are (file size), how often they are edited, etc. But we will not look into you mind maps.
You open the new Incoming mind map, select the root node, and chose “Add monitoring folder” in the menu. You follow the instructions on the screen and select the folder that contains your PDFs (if you want several folders to watch, just pick one of them). Now, you have the same functionality as in your “Literature and Annotations” mind map. When you click the refresh icon on the root node, all PDFs and annotations that not in any of your other Library mind maps yet, will be added to the incoming node. However, there are many settings you may change (read on in the next section). Btw. you don’t have to place a monitoring node on the root node in a new mind map. You can add this functionality to any node, in any mind map, you want.
Through the Wates Giving programme we set up Changing Paths Charitable Trust. They help ex and serving offenders into sustainable employment predominately in London and the South East by working with the Wates project teams and their supply chains. We also run a series of programmes across the country every year called Building Futures where we work locally with our customers to provide specific employment programmes from our construction sites.
