Just Caring Midlands is a registered Christian charity established in 2012, to help vulnerable and needy young people in the Birmingham area.
Many of us are fortunate enough to know the love and support of friends and family who can help us as we start out in life and be there for us through times of crisis. However for a lot of young people in Birmingham, this is not the case.
As well as those who are homeless, many leave home or care with no one outside the official system to help them get started in life. They might have a place to stay but no idea how to budget, shop, cook or care for themselves. Some may have difficulties with reading and writing which prevent them from getting a job even though they desperately want to work. Many more may have suffered from abuse and have little self esteem and limited life skills. Sometimes, events have just conspired against them and they may find themselves needing a little extra support.
Social Services and many other agencies help thousands of disadvantaged young people every year to find homes and jobs but many of them need something more. Just Caring Midlands can provide a support network for these young people, helping them to engage with their communities, learn how to take care of themselves and ensure that they are not alone…for as long as they want us.
While we offer support to all, our ethos is based very firmly on principles drawn from the Bible
Micah 6 v 8
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
