A large part of our work as a charity is, and needs to be, around talking about the realities of homelessness and bringing to the fore the issues in our town. Homelessness is something we can feel removed from and it is something often misunderstood. Please see our resources below to introduce the topic of homelessness and the work of Turning Tides to your class or youth group. The following are most commonly used by us for our harvest talks but can be adapted.
Primary Age resource
Middle School - High School resource
You can also visit our Testimonials page to see real life stories about the people we have supported. Sometimes these can be the best way of learning about homelessness and it makes it real. Please also feel free to contact the Fundraising Team on 01903 680740 / firstname.lastname@example.org at any time to arrange for a member of staff to come in and speak with your class or in your school assembly. We love to answer any questions and embrace all opportunities to speak about the work the charity does in our local area.
A fantastic resource for schools is the Shelter Classroom Kit.
