Night Stop & Nova Training Art Project

Category: Residential

We are currently on site at Castle Road, Kidderminster constructing a new 20 unit residential building that will help to support those needing short term accommodation.

The project forms part of our client, Wyre Forest District Councils, priority to make the district a clean, safe and green place to live, work and visit.

Residents will have a shared kitchen diner and lounge areas on all floors and an outside space. There will also be office space, parking and the site will be landscaped.

Procured through Procure Partnerships Framework we are committed to delivering back into the local economy through social value. As part of our commitment to create meaningful impact on the project, we have been continuing our partnership with Nightstop.

Nighstop, which is part of The Depaul Group are a homelessness organisation with specialism in supporting young people. They work in local communities across the country, offering emergency accommodation, through a network of trained volunteer host families, alongside longer term housing and accommodation services.

We have recently undertaken a unique collaborative project with Nightstop and Nova Training, which used art as a medium to convey the significance of secure accommodation. Raising awareness of the importance of secure accommodation, providing a platform for young people to express their experiences relating to homelessness and creating impactful artwork that engages the community, sparking conversations on the subject.

All participants created artwork that will be printed on the hoardings around our Castle Road site, turning them into vibrant displays of ‘safe spaces’. Our talented participants poured their creativity into designs that reflect comfort, security, and belonging.

The project had a profound impact on the participants, many expressed a sense of empowerment and pride in their contributions, as well as newfound confidence in their artistic abilities.

This collaborative project demonstrates the power of partnerships in driving social change. By harnessing the creativity and passion of young individuals, and combining it with the expertise and resources of local organisations, meaningful impact can be achieved in addressing complex issues such as homelessness and housing insecurity.

We will be continuing our work with Nova Training and Nightstop on a variety of projects over the duration of the Castle Road project.
