ST BASILS RESPONSE TO COVID-19

It’s a really tough time at the moment for everyone as we respond to the challenges presented by Coronavirus.  We want to assure you that our priority and focus is on preventing and responding to youth homelessness in the West Midlands. And whilst some of the ways we help may have to adapt, you can be sure that at the heart of everything we do, will be the health and wellbeing of the young people who need our support and the colleagues who provide it.

We have already put in a raft of measures to make sure we can carry on functioning as normally as possible.  Some of these measures are outlined here.

This service aims to help ensure young people in crisis who are 'roofless' and have nowhere else to go can access the support they need.

How we are helping young people sleeping rough in Birmingham during the COVID-19 pandemic

26th Mar, 2020

As you’ll be well aware the COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented situation which has massively impacted on and curtailed our daily routines and social situations. The latest government announcement on Monday ordered everyone to ‘stay home’, but then what happens if you don’t have a home?

We’ve had quite a few direct messages from our supporters about this so we just wanted to update you on what our Birmingham outreach teams and the partnership of agencies across Birmingham are now doing, and also how young people can get help right now.
