Yardley House (in Yardley, Birmingham) provides emergency accommodation, for up to three months, for 15 young men and women aged 16-25 in Birmingham. The scheme used to be single sex but now accepts both men and women. The property is based in the Yardley area of Birmingham and is staffed 24 hours a day.
The property comprises of 6 self contained bedsits with shared bathrooms. In addition there are 9 rooms with shared bathrooms, kitchens and lounge. Also on site are an IT room, laundry and music room.
There is disabled access to part of the building.
We are always in need of donations of toiletries and starter pack items at this scheme because some young people arriving at the project will not have had the chance to pack and come to us with nothing but what they are wearing and a few other personal items.
If you can help with donations please call Jula on 0121 789 9019.
A huge thank you to staff at Heartlands Hospital. At Christmas we received lots of boxes of presents for young people as instead of them buying for each other they used the money to buy for young people at Yardley. This is the 3rd year in a row they have done this. They have also offered to volunteer their time to come out and do some activities’ with young residents.
