How we help - Schools education

Wyre Forest Nightstop works actively with local schools by running participatory sessions on youth homelessness.

Why do we offer these sessions?

The aim is to better inform young people on this topic, take away some of the stereotypical myths about homeless young people and provide them with the knowledge of what is available should they find themselves in the position of not being able to return home.

What can schools expect to gain from this work?

More rounded pupils who understand that homelessness can happen to anyone and know what to do should this happen to them.

Complements the PSHE curriculum and free to local schools. Partially funded by Wyre Forest District Council as part of their strategic action plan to meet the new Government Homeless Reduction Act 2018.

Proactive support for schools to work towards meeting the new Act.

How can schools become involved with us?
