Shared HR project set for expansion

Charities are being invited to join a new social enterprise that provides shared human resources services.

The initiative has grown out of a two-year pilot programme to provide shared HR support to 13 London homelessness organisations.

Homelessness charity Broadway was given £160,000 by the London Housing Foundation to run the pilot. In an evaluation of the project by Triangle Consulting, 77 per cent of participating organisations said it had helped them to improve.

Broadway has now set up Real People, a social enterprise to provide consultancy-style HR services to charities.

Alex Botha, deputy chief executive of Homeless Link, said: "We have an HR budget for the first time. Our ways of working are more professional and our line managers feel confident and supported."
