Stapleford young people to sleep out on the streets in aid of Broxtowe Youth Homelessness

Published 26th February 2020

Young people and staff from Inspire Learning’s study programme at Stapleford Young People’s Centre will sleep out on the streets of Stapleford on 5 March 2020 to raise money for Broxtowe Youth Homelessness.

Broxtowe Youth Homelessness is a charitable organisation working in partnership with The Lottery Fund, Broxtowe Borough Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council, providing support for young people aged 16 – 25 years old who have experienced or are at risk of homelessness. They aim to prevent homelessness in the first instance or help the homeless to rebuild their lives.

Inspire Learning’s study programmes for young people aged 16-24, delivered in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council and the Education Skills Funding Agency, are designed to give young people a first step in to further study, employment, traineeships or apprenticeships. Young people work towards a recognised qualification, plus GCSE or Functional Skills Maths and English. Community group work placements such as this are an integral part of the programme.

The young people chose to support Broxtowe Youth Homelessness because it is a local smaller charity that supports those of a similar age to themselves. They wanted a tough challenge to allow them to feel what it would be like to be less fortunate. The charity work will also contribute to their teamwork AIM Award which they are currently studying for. Learners must plan and work as a team to ensure that the sleep out goes smoothly.

Details of the fundraiser can be found online here:!/ . Learners are also appealing for food and warm clothing to donate to Broxtowe Youth Homelessness. There is a collection point available at Stapleford Young People’s Centre.

Young people can enrol on to an Inspire Learning study programme at any time during the year. Study programmes are delivered from 10 bases across Nottinghamshire: Arnold, Hucknall, Sutton in Ashfield, Eastwood, Mansfield, Newark, Ollerton, Retford, Worksop and Stapleford.
