32 young people learn 21st Century Skills at our STEP camp

At our two-day School of Independent Living camp, young people who are in care or in “families in crisis” developed skills that many employers look for. These 21st Century Skills include public speaking, problem solving and emotional intelligence. An exciting line up of coaches and volunteers led workshops. Angela says "Thank you for the opportunity to develop as individuals!"

Help for families in crisis

373 children received food parcels this winter, with loads of fresh fruit and 73 sets of groceries delivered. To give longer-term solutions we are transitioning some children into our sponsorship and other programmes, with 5 families selected to start as soon as possible. And Covid didn’t stop us from spreading Christmas cheer through our volunteers’ Shrek-themed video.

STEP - empowering young people

We are doing more digitally to empower young people as they prepare for independence. Teenagers have joined our weekly online meetings during times of isolation. For those who lost jobs, food support was a lifeline. And we are developing an app to reach many more care leavers with advice and support.
