Sponsor an Indykit
Not many 17 year olds have their own cutlery.
Quite often, when the young people we support move into a room in a shared house they don't have more than the clothes they're in, let alone a mug or loo roll.
It's most likely they don't know anyone in the house, and for many it's their first time living alone. It can be a bit scary and lonely and feels even worse if you can't even make a cup of tea.
An Indykit gives them the small start-up kit they need - a towel, some bedding, cutlery, crockery, some toiletries and cleaning stuff and a choice of hot drink. Basics.
We can do this for about £50. Not a bad price for a sense of dignity and a small bit of independence.
