We are St Basils

St Basils works with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, helping young people across the West Midlands region with specific services in Birmingham, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall, Worcestershire, the Wyre Forest, Coventry and Warwickshire. For some young people this includes their young children as well. We have a range of prevention, accommodation and support services to help young people regain the stability they need to rebuild their lives, gain skills, training and employment and move on. The aim is to help them successfully break the cycle of homelessness so that they can go on to experience a bright, fulfilling future and never return to a state where they are at risk of homelessness again.

I want to be a mental health worker....I want to help people where I am because if everyone did that and helped the people in their little part of the world then that would have a knock-on effect and change the whole world.” - Archie
