This week, we’d like to help a teenage boy called Jayden, who was kicked out of home with nowhere to go.
His dad was in and out of prison, so Jayden’s mum looked after the children mostly on her own. When Jayden turned 16, she said he was old enough to support himself and made him leave.
Jayden found this really difficult to deal with, and had to seek support from a homeless charity. As well as giving him shelter, they also provided him with counselling and budgeting support. It’s time for him to move into more permanent accommodation now, and he has just received the keys to a council flat. But it is bare and he has nothing.
Jayden has had a lot of trauma to deal with in his life, with very little support from anyone. We’d like to help him to set up his new home, and give him all the kindness and support he needs.
