Cityserve has teamed up with Ark Kings and St Basils to raise awareness and vital funds to help prevent youth homelessness.

Our suppliers, Arthur Brett and Blakemores have each kindly donated sufficient fresh ingredients so that students and staff can enjoy ‘Tomato & St. Basils’ soup all week from 13th March. Chef Chrissy Jackson has created a truly delicious bowl-filler and hopes that everyone will dig-deep to support this excellent cause.

About St Basils:

St Basils works with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, helping over 5000 young people per year across the West Midlands region with specific services in Birmingham, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, the Wyre Forest and Coventry. Every year over 1200 young people are housed in their 29 supported accommodation schemes, which for some young people includes their young children as well. They 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.

St Basils also works with young people and partners on a national basis (funded separately). They facilitate the National Youth Reference Group and the Youth Homeless Parliament, are part of the national End Youth Homelessness Alliance and are working to roll out our ‘Positive Pathway’ model nationwide.
