Help us End Youth Homelessness

103,000 young people in the UK are homeless or at risk of homelessness*

Homelessness isn’t a choice and it doesn’t discriminate. It’s dangerous. It’s disruptive. It’s frightening. And winter is the cruellest time to be shut out.

We’re proud to partner with End Youth Homelessness, a UK wide movement, bringing together local charities to tackle youth homelessness on a national scale.

With just £5 you can make a difference and help a young person find a safe place to stay.

If you can’t go home because you’re too scared, where can you go?

For a young person, being homeless and moving from place to place makes holding down a job virtually impossible. It’s a vicious cycle that affects confidence and mental wellbeing.

Our funding helps young people live independently in their own home. Through rental deposit guarantees and home essentials grants, our project gives practical help to young people across the UK who are ready to make that step to live independently.

To support them in their new home, young people also benefit from financial advice and support in building the life skills and confidence they need to move on to lead successful and independent lives.
