Schools & Colleges
We are eager to come and meet the staff and pupils at local schools and would welcome an invite to talk in an assembly or deliver a formal session within the classroom. Our training department have developed a number of interactive sessions for schools and our experienced team from Access Community Trust can deliver these in your school.
We would be thrilled if your school was able to fundraise for Access Community Trust and would welcome the opportunity to discuss your ideas further.
Last year a local high school hosted a Sponsored Sleepover over which was a fantastic success! The students took part in various activities over the course of the night to learn more about the issues of homelessness and after making their own makeshift shelter for the night they bedded down in the school hall and had a first hand experience of just some of the problems people face who are sleeping rough at night. We are keen to get more local schools involved in this project which is a key way of engaging young people to really think about homelessness and also provides an opportunity to raise money for our work.
