Schools & Educational Workshops
We offer various Educational Workshops in our Hub and deliver talks and seminars off site all tailored to suit each individual group. Our workshops are built around prevention and tackling the stigma and barriers associated with homelessness. Our workshop for Primary School age focuses on positivity and wellbeing through more activity led creative artwork sessions, discussing how to raise awareness and make change, whilst still delivering a positive message around prevention of homelessness. Workshops undertaken in the Hub also include cooking for the evening’s meal and packing our Cleaner Clothes packs and Stay Fresh toiletry packs.
We offer a workshop aimed at children 11+ and is more targeted around issues including knife crime, drugs, alcohol, gangs and anti social behaviour and how involvement in one or more can lead to homelessness. This is a more hard hitting workshop and includes interaction with other services including the Police, paramedics, Fire Brigade and drug and alcohol misuse teams. Focusing on how anyone can get easily involved and determining how they can avoid or prevent these situations from arising.
Each workshop also includes taking part in survival bag packing, these are much needed items that we give out on a weekly basis. The survival bag contains a drink, biscuit, sandwich, crisps and a chocolate bar. We also talk about how important it is for everyone to maintain not just their physical health and wellbeing but also their emotional wellbeing. We help with the identification and expression of this through art that is produced on the day.
