We want to end youth homelessness and we’re tackling the problem locally by providing a home and support to over 100 vulnerable young people at any time.
£25 could buy a new duvet, pillows and covers for a young person when they arrive at one of our accommodation centres with few possessions of their own.
We deliver a range of services to support children, young people and families facing challenges. This includes helping children and young people to talk about their feelings in order to build self-confidence, resilience and helping them to recognise their ‘inner-wealth’.
£180 pays for 6 sessions of emotional wellbeing support for a young person. We delivered 10,184 sessions of emotional wellbeing support to young people in local schools in the 2018/19 academic year.
We provide positive activities for young people with limited opportunities in life. Perhaps they’re caring for a relative or they come from a socially deprived area. In 2017/18 351 young carers attended groups sessions in Norfolk.
£500 will pay for a residential trip for a group of young people to give them the chance to escape their day-to-day pressures and be a child again.
Not only do we give vulnerable young people a safe and stable home, but support them with the skills they need so they can leave us and forge an independent life, and help them with their training, education and career.
In 2018/19 our Job Coach supported 132 young people to successfully move into employment, education and training. £1,000 could buy chefs whites and equipment to enable 5 young people we’ve supported to start building a career, gain confidence and news skills by beginning a catering course.
Our work keeps vulnerable young people off the streets and helps prevent the local homelessness problem growing.
£10,000 could pay the rent deposit for private accommodation for 10 young people who are ready to move on from our accommodation centres.
