One Single Step’s work in partnership with The Cyrenians involved one-to-one listening, discussion and group meetings, leading to fifteen 18-23 year olds developing a range of life-plans to assist their growth in a positive direction. They also created an innovative range of poster designs, song-lyrics and photography, to raise awareness of personal situations that had led, in their case, to becoming homeless, which placed them in a vulnerable situation.
The young people explored a range of funding-streams and looked at becoming involved in One Single Step’s Healing Heart events at Bleabury Tarn and at Ullswater in The Lake District. Research was also compiled, to take a film project they designed entitled A Place To Call Home to its next level.
Isolated, Vulnerable, Without Direction, Lost, Forgotten, Fragile, Scarred, One The Edge, Broken, No Motivation, No Confidence, No Purpose, Neglected, Damaged. These are all words we have gathered from feedback of working with a number of young people..
Our work is continuing in this direction.
