© The Exaireo Trust Limited
Registered Charity number: 1125402
The Exaireo Trust was formed to help homeless people to rehabilitate themselves by providing accommodation, education, skills training, advice, support and practical work experience. The Trust currently provides accommodation in eight houses in Loughborough and one in Coalville and has helped more than four hundred and twenty five residents in the eight years since opening.
The support we give our residents includes helping them back into work. One way we
do this is by providing work placements with our connected Community Interest Company
We offer drug and alcohol related support including relapse prevention courses and one to one counselling.
Of the residents we have helped in the last 8 years, 30% have found work and 28% have gone back into education or training.
National recognition for our work -
The Mark Duncan Award.
Representatives of the charity were proud to attend the prestigious CSJ Awards in London and collect the inaugural Mark Duncan Award in recognition of our work.
Our award has been given in honour of Mark Duncan, a Researcher from the CSJ, who passed away in April this year. We are very proud to have been selected by Mark’s family to receive this award.
Recently we have set up an Exaireo Trust wordpress blog. We have already posted a couple of articles, one outlining any free food services in and around Loughborough including times, dates and addresses. Another one giving information on Encounter Camp 2016, a Christian event which aims to set people with broken lives free through encounters with god. We are publishing the links to our blog posts on our twitter account @TheExaireoTrust.

We have just returned from our annual outward bound trip in the Peak District.
Residents and staff enjoyed a few nights away at The Peak Centre, Edale.
Activities included the indoor climbing wall, horse riding, canoeing and raft building, waking on the moorland and Go Ape.
Everyone had a great time, relationships were established and strengthened and residents challenged.
