25th Anniversary Celebration 08-Sep-2016

Published for:The Project

On the first of September, South Birmingham Young Homeless Project celebrated its 25th anniversary at the Old Hare and Hounds in Rednal. The event was attended by both the charities service users and friends and supporters from the local community. A bouncy castle, face painting, balloon modelling and some visiting popular children?s character kept the kids entertained while the adults took tours of the new Mobile Advice Centre and got a first glimpse of the charities brand new website. The project was initially founded by Carrol Cooke to provide support and advice to the young people of South Birmingham who were homeless or in need, since then the charity has helped thousands of men, women and families to improve their situations. Skip to 2016 and the new project manager Helen Sephton and her dedicated team are helping more people than ever. The remit of South Birmingham Young Homeless Project is now bigger than ever too. The charity provides quality assured advice and support to people of all ages and from all over Birmingham. To reflect this and the greater focus on preventing homelessness the charity has taken the move to change its name to The Project. The 25 year celebration turned out to be the perfect opportunity to launch the new and improved charity name as well as to showcase the new visual branding to go with it. While there is still a need in Birmingham for advice and support for the vulnerable and at risk in Birmingham, The Project will strive to meet that need, providing crisis support, benefit, debt and housing advice and other essential services. Their new Mobile Advice Centre, which is a specially converted exhibition van, will enable them, for the first time, to take their services out into the wider community and will enable them to help even more people.
