The Foundation story starts in the early 1980s when a group of probation workers realised that ex-offenders could only really stay out of trouble with help: a roof over their head, somewhere to cook, their own space and support to help them turn their lives around.

The team together set up the West Riding Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders ‘bedsit project’, working in partnership with Leeds Federated Housing Association to provide furnished accommodation for just six people.

They created the Timble Housing Project, the forerunner of Foundation, in 1984 and today work in locations across the North of England to tackle social exclusion of all kinds. In doing so, they support 3,000 customers including adults with drug and alcohol problems, women suffering from domestic violence, the young and the vulnerable, the homeless and people at risk of homelessness.
