YOP is back for July
The YOP team is so thrilled and grateful to be back for July. We can’t wait to work with you, support more people and prevent homelessness through skills and confidence development.
DigiTILS+ is live. On 1st May we launched ten online and interactive tenancy training modules.
You are keeping us open!
Your Own Place, like many our others, has postponed face to face delivery. Whilst we’re re-starting very soon:
- TILS+ has gone digital – and still interactive and fun
- We are still taking referrals of mentees
- We are still supporting existing mentors and mentees to stay in touch, get online and find new ways of mentoring
- YOPAB is virtual, designing online socials, quizzes and testing our ideas
- We are still taking bookings of face-to-face TILS+ courses
- eMentoring Training goes live 1st August and existing socially distanced mentoring training will continue then too
- Re-start – we are developing our package of virtual and face to face Business Training as we support our people and our teams with compassion

Simple Online Guides
We’re pleased to share this freebie that Jarrod put together too. We were approached by a YOP friend who supports volunteers to help dementia sufferers using music. They found it really hard to help people get online and do the basics, as all the information is online! So we’re really pleased to have created a Simple Guide to Online & Email that can be printed out and used directly with people getting started.
Joining a Zoom session
Another simple guide for you – this time, Jarrod’s one-page guide to getting safely onto Zoom – as now we’re all using it every day.
