Live and Work scheme

St Basils isn't just a charity, we are also a Housing Association aiming to offer good, affordable accommodation at cut price rents to young people looking to live independently. 

The scheme provides accommodation for young people for only £43 per week all inclusive. This scheme is open to all 16-24 years old in the West Midlands that are currently working – whether that be an apprentice or a graduate position.

The accommodation is home to 32 young people, comprised of 8 flats. Each flat has 4 bedrooms, a shared kitchen, dining and bathroom facilities. It is positioned only 20 minutes away from Birmingham City Centre with amazing transport links!          

We also offer support to the young people living here. There is always a staff member available to chat, help and support 9 – 5 Monday – Friday. As well as an on-call support, if a young person is in need of help 24/7.

This scheme has won three NHS Awards, two for partnership work and one for ‘Excellence in Education’, as well as being nominated for other awards.

Come and see for yourself!
