Supporting Kirklees Care leavers at Number 11

We’re using our spaces in an innovative way to help care leavers in Kirklees. In just six weeks, our colleagues at KNH property services transformed our old register office into a drop in centre for care leavers and looked after children in Kirklees.

We involved local children in the design of the space which aims to help them to develop their skills and confidence and prepare them for independent living when they leave care.

Number 11 has facilities such as a shower, washing machine and kitchen and there are staff and volunteers on hand to offer support.

Have a look at this slideshow of the drop in space which shows you just how brilliant it is!
