NightStop - Bradford charity helping young homeless

Bradford NightStop's website is packed with content, including profiles of young people who have used the service to make a fresh start.
NightStop work with local volunteers to provide advice and practical assistance, not least an alternative to the worst response to homelessness, sleeping on the streets, to 16-25 year-olds who find themselves in crisis and without a home.

There is a wealth of further information on what they do, how they can help, and links/contact details for NightStop and other relevant local agencies, on their website.

Below you can view a short film introducing you to some of the young people who have been helped by NightStop, and some of the volunteers who help ensure Bradford's young people have an alternative to sleeping on the streets - even one night doing this can lead to multiplying problems, and make it more difficult to resolve the problems that led to the homelessness.

Below you can find a PowerPoint quiz on homelessness and the law (amongst other issues), and photographs of NightStop in action.

Designing your own lesson on teen health

YOU will be teaching the class...
...Not just presenting findings from your research, into a health issue and how it impacts on young people, but thinking of how best to make this interesting for and to engage your classmates

LESSON 1: You will have some time to form a group, agree a topic and begin to think about the lesson.
LESSON 2: Time to plan and bring together materials.
You must make sure everyone in the group has ALL of the materials produced by the groups. If you have audio, video, PowerPoint, pdf or Word documents, you can send them to me and I will embed them within this post to help with this!
LESSON 3: Deliver your 15 minute mini-lesson!

Here are the two documents to help you with this work; the instructions (including hyperlinks you might find useful) and an example of a lesson plan:
