What we do

 

 

Our focus is on preventing homelessness - from education in schools and family mediation through to supporting 16-24 year olds in their first homes or caring for adults of all ages who have mental health issues and housing needs.

Our services empower young people to be able to deal with the difficult situations in their lives, giving them the ability and confidence to 'do it themselves' and ultimately find stability.

MORE WAYS TO HELP

How we help

 

Last year we helped over 2,495 people get their lives back on track


Education

Young people are educated on the realities of homelessness, leaving home and independent living in order that they may be less likely to experience youth homelessness.

Mediation

Mediators work with young people who are having arguments at home, offering unbiased support to help families understand the issues that need to be resolved.

The Homeless Hub

The Hub prioritises 16 and 17 year olds, often in crisis, and works intensively with them and their families, alongside other agencies, in order to prevent homelessness.
 

Outreach

A range of services for young people aged 18-24, including care leavers and those leaving supported accommodation, who require advice on housing related issues and support developing independent living skills.

Health

Services for people in housing need who are suffering with mental ill health, addiction or learning disabilities and require additional support.

LiveLife

A youth-led project for young people who have experienced homelessness offering opportunities and activities, peer to peer support and the chance to improve social skills and confidence.
