Streetwork

By | Published | No Comments

Our church is a proud supporter of StreetWork – a community charity that supports vulnerable young people to turn their lives around.

For the past 13 years we have housed the StreetWork team in our upstairs offices and also provided a venue, speakers and volunteers for their fundraising events.

The 11 to 18 year olds StreetWork mentors are challenged by youth homelessness, mental health – suicidal thoughts and self harm – disengagement from school, alcohol/substance misuse and youth crime.

StreetWork’s early intervention and prevention program – KickStart – encourages young participants to set goals and then connects them with the community services that can help them achieve those goals. 

Through non-judgemental support their trained youth case workers support vulnerable young people to break free of destructive behaviours, build new skills and confidently live their best life.

The results speak for themselves – PwC’s 2020 research confirms that an impressive 85%* of StreetWork’s program participants graduated and achieved their goals.   The research also highlighted that for every $1 in sponsorship dollars StreetWork receive, there’s a $16 saving to the community
