A bus operator is providing free transport to and from job interviews for homeless people in Kent.
Sittingbourne-based Chalkwell is working with the charity Porchlight to help people in homeless hostels.
Jo Dawes, from Porchlight, said many in its supported accommodation project for 16 to 24-year-olds would have been unable to afford the transport costs.
"At Porchlight, we know that getting a job can change someone's life," she said.
"It leads to stability, independence and is a key way out of future homelessness."
The charity operates 11 hostels for the homeless in Kent.
