Episode 10 – This week Bryony chats with Vanessa from St. Basil’s in Birmingham. St. Basil’s support hundreds of young people at risk of homelessness, or who are currently homeless, across the Midlands. They provide employment and benefits advice, as well as emergency and affordable accommodation. We talk about the increasing pressure on services, and the unique difficulties for youth, as well as the great difference donations make to the young people being supported.
If you are 25 or under in the Midlands and currently at risk of becoming homeless, you can contact St. Basil’s on 0300 303 0099 or text NEED ST BASILS to 62277.
