New Horizon Youth Centre
£40,000 is supporting young homeless people to find safe housing and maintain their tenancies
LandAid, Knight Frank and Property Race Day have funded Giroscope's ‘Hull Young Futures Project’ in West Hull, renovating two large houses to provide emergency accommodation for eight young people in severe housing need. The project will house young ex-offenders who would otherwise be homeless following their release and give them the chance to help out with the project and gain valuable experience in construction.
Mayer Brown are providing pro bono legal advice through LandAid to Giroscope to assist them with setting up the correct legal documentation required for tenants of emergency and short term accommodation.
This project will help ex-offenders get their lives back on track. They will be provided with a Youth Training Manager who, as well as helping them gain experience in construction, will work with them to develop a personal learning plan with further work opportunities, college courses or apprenticeships in mind.
