Young Energy Champions Are Live!

Young Energy Champions Are Live!

Posted 15th January 2024

The Young Energy Champions are now live across YouTube, TikTok and Spotify! They have come up with several different ways to make you aware of saving energy and how important it is to be aware. The Young Energy Champions has been an 18 month project within NHP. The project has aimed to educate young people & staff in House Projects around energy awareness and for this knowledge to be continually shared with future cohorts and future generations of care experienced young people. The project has been co-produced with four core young energy champions leading on its implementation over these 18 months. Dozens of people have been trained, numerous energy workshops delivered and a substantial amount of energy vouchers distributed.

One Young Energy Champion stated that:

 

Being a part of the Young Energy Champions has taught me everything there is to need to know about saving energy, I was so grateful for the opportunity as I can now teach others what I have learnt.

EXIT Study: Toolkit launched!
EXIT Study: Toolkit launched!

Care leavers are set to benefit from a new innovation toolkit designed by Warwick Business School. The Implementation Toolkit helps local authorities, care homes, charities and organisations working in the care sector to implement new ideas that will improve their service without getting stuck with ‘pilotitis’ – ie never seeing the light of day after numerous trials. It has been produced as part of a four-year research project in collaboration with the Care Leavers Association alongside charities Barnardo’s and the National House Project. So many innovative ideas wither away because of a lack of resource or support, while young people leaving care face the brutal reality of a system that leaves them two and a half times more likely to become a young parent; four times more likely to experience mental health issues; and less likely to achieve academically in school, attend higher education, or be in employment. Graeme Currie, Professor of Public Management said: “Young people leaving care face an extremely difficult transition and are often dealing with the trauma of a desperately challenging childhood.

IMPACT’s objectives fitted well with those of NHP and what we wanted to achieve organisationally in order to provide a positive environment for young care experienced adults to feel supported and thrive. On this basis we put in a bid to be an IMPACT Demonstrator Site, suggesting that we have Coventry and Fife LHPs as areas of focus to enable us to look at frameworks for both England and Scotland. Our bid was successful, and we look forward to starting this work in September which will run until September 2025.
