In Birmingham we have St Basils Youth Hub: the gateway to a whole range of services from us and 5 other local providers for young people (aged 16-25) who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. St Basils also has 24 supported accommodation projects in Birmingham providing over 350 bed spaces for homeless young people.
We also offer:
Access to all these services and more from other local providers is through the Youth hub on Heath Mill Lane, Deritend, Birmingham. Please click on the 'Get Help' button above if you need help or want to access any of these services.
We are looking for businesses in the Birmingham area willing to offer mentoring to a young person and/ or willing to take on one of our young residents for a one week or two week work experience placement. Willmott Dixon recently reported a very positive experience with one of our young people: Maria, 24 (pictured). They liked her so much they ended up offering her a position - although there is absolutely no expectation to do this.
To discuss further with no obligation please contact Learning, Skills and Work Manager Tamaan Warner on 0121 772 9501 or email LSW@stbasils.org.uk.
For other ways to help us, such as making St Basils your 'Charity of the Year', please see the Help us > partnerships with local Businesses section.
