Sarah

 

In a nutshell, what do you do?

 

I do prevention work in schools, colleges and youth clubs. We do workshops on homelessness, conflict resolution and independent living, to give young people the skills they’ll need to live on their own. We also provide them with information on where and how to get help and support.

Leonie

 

In a nutshell, what do you do?

 

I lead a team of coordinators, mentors and volunteers in the delivery of our Live Life project – a service user involvement project for young people who have previously experienced homelessness. Live Life shapes and gives feedback to our charity, supports young people to access positive social activities, and engage in training or education opportunities so they can achieve a more positive future.

In a nutshell, what do you do?

 

I support 16 and 17 year olds in Hertfordshire who are either having difficulties at home or who currently don’t have a stable place to stay. This includes sofa surfing, staying with relatives or having nowhere to go at all. The Advice and Information Workers support young people and their families in a number of ways by engaging in mediation or looking into alternative accommodation. We also signpost to other services for additional support such as YC Herts, colleges and mental health support.
