This month we've got our Q&A with Barrie from St Basils...

Who are you and what is your role? 

I’m Barrie Hodge and I am the Head of Fundraising and Communications at St Basils

How long have you worked for St Basils

I’ve worked here for 10 months.

What does St Basils do and where do you operate? 

We are a charity that supports 16-25 year olds without a home in the West Midlands.  Our aim is to give young people the tools they need to break the cycle of homelessness for good.

What is the best thing about your job? 

The variety.  One day I’ll be speaking with business leaders and challenging their perceptions of young people and homelessness.  The next day I’ll be making toast at a charity Sleep Out.

How does being part of EYH benefit you and your organisation? 

Sharing ideas with other organisations who have a similar vision as ours.  It is nice to know there are others who face the same challenges as we do.  It is great to share thoughts and experiences with others facing the same issues as we do.
