What is youth homelessness?

We know homeless young people are sleeping rough on the streets every night. But there are thousands more you don't see. 

Our support services

We provide accommodation, health support and life skills to get vulnerable young people back into education, training and employment.

Our impact

Thanks to our supporters, we've been one of the most effective charities that help homeless young people for almost 50 years.

Chance To Move On: Ask Your MP

Young people are most likely to lose their job during the coronavirus crisis. Yet under-25s receive less Universal Credit to help with food and bills. Without family support, many face hunger and homelessness.

It’s your MP’s job to make your voice heard - sending a quick email can make a real difference.

Will you stand up for young homeless people? Email your MP here.
