the ginger nut project.

helping to provide support and opportunities to young people who are care-experienced

Did you know that 1 in 3 young people will experience homelessness in the 2 years after they leave care?

In some circumstances these young people are expected to be fully independent when they are still just teenagers and often without the support systems in place that every young person needs to thrive. It’s no surprise that so many feel unprepared.

That’s why we started The Ginger Nut Project.
