The chief executive of a Worcestershire charity awarded almost £100,000 to tackle the problem of homelessness in the county has welcomed the cash injection.
Jean Templeton, who runs St Basils in North Worcestershire, said the money would be used to help young people become more independent.
This grant has been awarded at a time where we are seeing an increase in young people sleeping rough in Worcestershire and where services are at their most stretched with ‘Housing Related Support’ services being reduced.
We are delighted to be working in partnership with the local authorities to ensure that vulnerable young people get the appropriate support in finding a solution for their housing needs and to avoid a rough sleeping crisis.
In addition, we will be able to equip them with the skills and resilience they need to become independent.
