The Youthline is a 24/7 helpline, provided in partnership with five different local housing agencies and Birmingham City Council. It is the first point of call for young people to access any of St Basils services.
During office hours (9am-5pm, Monday -Friday) trained and experienced Youthline staff will ask a few questions to understand the situation you are in and take some key details from you, then invite you to attend an appointment at the Youth Hub for a more detailed individual assessment of your housing needs as well as advice and help accessing the options available to you.
Appointments bookings can only be made 9am-5pm, Monday- Friday. If you call out of hours (5pm-9am) you will be accessing our out of office mobile service. During this time staff provide can only provide advice and signposting. If you require an appointment please call during office hours (9am-5pm, Monday - Friday).
You must have an appointment to come to the Youth Hub, but if you are in urgent need of help, Youthline can arrange a same day appointment for you. Please be aware depending on your age and circumstances, you may need to have several different assessments on the same day.
Please don't just 'drop-in' - if you do you must be prepared for a very long wait and there are no guarantees that staff will be able to see you so to avoid dissapointment please always book an appointment through Youthline.
