Preventing homelessness in Schools
Your Own Place was delighted to have secured Children in Need and Youth Futures Foundation funding to improve the employment outcomes for year 9s at two Norwich schools in 2021 and 2022.
As this exciting project now winds down with the end of the funding, we are not currently seeking new volunteers. Thank you to everyone that has volnteered with us and made a difference to a young person.
‘It’s good to talk to them. They can help you out with stuff. They’re older. They know the world a bit better. They can talk me through situations.’
‘My mentor was so lovely – her approach made me feel safe and comfortable so I could be open and express myself.’
Our 2020 community mentoring project end of year report illustrates the success our mentoring has achieved. You can read it here.
