Young people

Our services

We support young people aged between 16 and 25 by encouraging them to focus on their strengths and build positive support networks to achieve their aspirations, whether that is returning to education, finding meaningful work or making new friendships.

Our services specialise in supporting young people facing homelessness, including those who are:

  • Care leavers or looked after children (over 16)

  • Overcome addiction

  • Young parents

  • Experiencing family or relationship breakdown
