1625 Independent People

Independent People provide housing, support and advice to homeless children and young adults in the SW. For some, we're all the support they've got. We're working in schools to prevent future homelessness. Our service works because young people help us run it. They need our support. We need yours.

Story

How many 17 year olds have cutlery or duvet?

Quite often, when the young people we support move into a room in a shared house they don't have more than the clothes they're in, let alone a mug or loo roll!

It's most likely they don't know anyone in the house, and for many it's their first time living alone. It can be a bit scary and quite lonely.

An Indykit gives them the small start up kit they need - a towel, some bedding, cutlery, crockery, some toiletries and cleaning stuff and a choice of hot drink. Basics.


We can do this for about £50. Not a bad price for a sense of dignity and a small bit of independence.

Please give what you can.
