Our digital journey with support from Comic Relief and Paul Hamlyn Foundation

2nd June 2021

“One small step for 1625 Independent People. One giant leap for young people facing homelessness”

 

We’re so excited to take the next step on our digital journey thanks to Comic Relief and Paul Hamlyn Foundation. As part of the Tech for Good Build Programme, we’ll be exploring how technology can be used to its full potential to build relationships and trust remotely.

We want to go further to ensure our services are completely flexible and built to do the most for young people. CAST and project partners the DOT project will be helping us along the way, and we’ll be working alongside young people to co-design changes we want to see.

Together, we can create a future where no young person is excluded from support; where every young person has a trusted adult they can turn to, and feel hopeful and empowered.
