Your Support Can Change Lives
“I am in a fantastic position now. I came back to the UK 16 years ago with the goal of obtaining an undergraduate degree and postgraduate degree and pursuing a legal career. That is exactly what I have done! St Basils foregrounded that my circumstances did not define me– this is something I have carried with me. St Basils’ ethos is that – we were young people experiencing homelessness, not homeless young people. We still have the same dreams and aspirations as other young people.”
Because of the support of St Basils, I achieved some of the highest grades in the country for my A Levels, and went on to study law at one of the best universities in the country and in the world. St. Basils ensures that relatively short but nevertheless important periods of young people’s lives do not derail a persons’ entire future. They instil values in a cross-section of people that society often deems worthless.” – Past St Basils Resident
Your support allows young people to access:
- Accommodation and emergency housing for young people sleeping rough
- A hub for support systems including mental health, substance misuse and mediation support
- Employment and training opportunities
Watch below for a testimonial from Coventry Building Society about their Partnership with St Basils:
We’re looking to partner with businesses in the areas we work in across the West Midlands region which are Birmingham, Bromsgrove, Coventry, Evesham, Kidderminster, Leamington Spa, Redditch, Sandwell, Solihull, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the Wyre Forest.
We welcome partnerships with companies who align with our values and who are passionate about supporting young people to build a brighter future for our region.
We hold a number of events throughout the year, including our world famous Big Sleepout and our Hike for Homeless. We ask all of our Charity Partners to attend an event of your choice, where you can network with other companies, learn more about what we do, and most of all- have fun!
We have local projects in all of the above areas, in need of vital support and community. Many of our Charity of the Year Supporters enjoy visiting their local projects, especially for special occasions such as Christmas, Ramadan, and other community events. Some partners have even held classes and DIY upgrades for their local projects, including garden makeovers, budgeting classes and arts & crafts events. We also are always in need of volunteers for our events!
Love to bake? Holding a corporate event, such as an awards show or dinner? Does your team like to do Group Challenges, such as running or step counting?
