Media Coverage

Being a predominantly regional charity, we are often featured in local and housing sector news and there are far too many mentions of us to replicate them all here, however below are a few of the more pertinent ones from the last few years that we thought worth bookmarking and  sharing.

October/ November 2013 - end youth homelessness campaign and HRH prince williams' first visit

As a founding member of the national End Youth Homeless Alliance, which launched officially in May 2013, we ran a campaign in September and October in Birmingham in the run up to World Homeless Day on 13th October to get key public bodies, health and educational organisations as well as Coroporate companies to sign-up and pledge their support to help  End Youth Homelessness in Birmingham. We were successful in achieveing 'full city sign-up'. This culminated in HRH Prince William making his first visit to St Basils on 29th November 2013 which generated a lot of press coverage both locally and nationally; here are just a few of them:
