As part of our mission to reach more young people and increase our social impact, we’re working with more partners than ever. We’re told all the time that this is the best way forward, particularly when times are tough, as now. However, as a small organisation it’s time-consuming and we have to be honest that it doesn’t always work out. However, I’m confident that our new partnership with Stacy Bradley from The Smile Organisation will. You may recall that Stacy worked tirelessly for us last year, supporting young people into work opportunities – with some outstanding results. This week Stacy will be undertaking 1-2-1 Tenancy & Independent Living Skills (TILS) training for Your Own Place. She’ll be out and about, meeting young people face-to-face to understand their tenancy needs and anxieties. Over five sessions she’ll answer their questions, help them to find their own answers and allay those anxieties resulting in better and more confident tenants in our communities. With The Training Flat up and running, Stacy will be able to use this bespoke space to bring those words of wisdom alive and reach even more young people.
