The conversion work at Merryville House, the site of our new youth homelessness accommodation project, is well underway.

Our young people are working on the conversion with Volunteer It Yourself, VIY. VIY is an organisation which challenges young people to learn trade and employability skills by helping to fix up local youth and community facilities. The young people working on Merryville are gaining skills in plastering, tiling and decorating, and in so doing working towards a City & Guilds qualification.

Colour is being adding to rooms this week and things are really beginning to take shape.

Social distancing measures are in place at the site to keep everyone safe.
