Ashley Kate HR Midlands and South have got off to a cracking start and have raised £115 so far for from a raffle held at one of our HR Networking events.
This money has been split evenly between the Whitechapel Mission and Base 51.
Base 51 supports young people aged between 12 –25, providing easy access to services including: Health, Counselling, Housing Advice and Support, Learning Support, Support for young parents, practical support such as affordable meals, and free laundry and showers.
Base 51 recognises the challenges facing young people particularly those, who experience relationship breakdown in their families, find school difficult, have been in care, are a young parent or homeless. A “wrap round” service in one centre enables young people to work through these issues, make the transition to adulthood and contribute positively to their local community. Base 51 is in Nottingham city centre and is well used by young people from all areas of the city and walks of life
At the Whitechapel Mission, they have been helping Londoners to help the homeless since 1876, meeting the specific needs of each man and woman who walks through their doors. They are a volunteer led workforce with very few staff, but this does not mean they are a small organisation. First, they help the homeless by meeting immediate needs: food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. In their recovery programs, Whitechapel Mission volunteers help address deeper needs for life-skills and job skills training, and addiction recovery.
Whitechapel Mission measure progress against four criteria, which indicate that a life has been transformed from homelessness to hope: connection to family, commitment to sobriety, a job and a place to live, and a plan for the future. The Whitechapel Mission is called to serve the men and women caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds, and to see their lives transformed to hope, joy and lasting productivity.
