Who are we?

Cardboard City - Giving a voice to the homeless
Cardboard City was an event run by Charnwood Youth Councillors to give homless young people a say on the services that support them. Eleven Youth Councillors visited young people who live in hostels for homeless young people. They talked to them about youth homelessness and how services could be improved to give better support. Youth Councillors later on built a cardboard city in a car park and slept in it over night raising funds for two Charnwood charities who support local people facing housing difficulties.
