KSL gets involved at KHT fun day

KSL gets involved at KHT fun day 

On 12th July, Knowsley Supported Lodgings (KSL) attended the Knowsley Housing Trust (KHT) Community Fun Day at St George’s Field, Huyton. The event was an ideal occasion to raise awareness about the work of KSL through information leaflets; it was also an opportunity to network and recruit potential Householders to support the project.

Five KSL Householders gave their time throughout the day to help on the stand; they spoke with members of the public about their own experiences as householders which resulted in several people expressing an interest in becoming involved.

Two young people supported by KSL volunteered as stewards on the day which was hugely appreciated by KHT’s Customer Involvement Team.  Dan (pictured right said: “I enjoyed volunteering at the event - I lDan volunteers on the dayoved supporting people and helping members of the public.  I’m now going to volunteer regularly with KHT to help out their staff”.

KHT are the main provider of social housing in Knowsley).  Over the past year, 8 young people who we support have resettled into KHT properties and 3 volunteer with their Customer Involvement Team.

KSL young people are currently planning a Community Action Week in August in partnership with KHT, young people from Liverpool Supported Lodgings and the SHAP Hostel in Huyton.
