The Birmingham Assay Office will notÂ be sending Christmas cards in the post this year. The money saved as a result will be donated to a local charity. For 2013 we will support Birmingham based charity, St Basils.
St Basils works with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness They help overÂ 5000 young people per year across Birmingham, Solihull, Worcestershire and theÂ Coventry area.St Basils prevent youth homelessness with a helpline, advice, a schools project and a family mediation service. For young people who have become homeless, St Basils has a range of supported options from emergency projects that are staffed 24/7 onto varying degrees of semi-independent accommodation. They also have designated support services which aim to help young people realise a brighter future by gaining the skills needed to move on successfully to independent living and access education, training and employment, in order to develop confidence, skills and opportunities, and ultimately stop the cycle of homelessness.
ST BASILS BIG SLEEP OUT
|BIG SleepOut is a sponsored challenge to sleep 'rough' for one night in St Basils car park in Digbeth, Birmingham to remind ourselves of why it is important to have services which prevent young people becoming homeless.||Â|
