Celebrating 25 Years of The National Lottery.
29th October 2019
Lottery funds have helped us to make a HUGE difference to the lives of vulnerable young people by funding our Drop In Service. During the 2018/19 financial year we had 2,205 visits to the Drop In, which equates to an average of 19 per young person. This shows that many young people who use the service present with a number of complex issues, which take considerable time to address. Our support workers work hard to provide them with the support they need to secure and maintain a tenancy. This may be through helping them through the housing process, to claim the correct benefits, supporting them with budgeting and managing debts, completing forms and building a CV, as well as referring them to other agencies for further support.
We would not be able to complete this vital work without funding from The National Lottery, so today we celebrate with a crossed fingers selfie!
