What we can help with

We help young people to avoid becoming homeless in the first place and avert crisis situations. This allows young people and their families the opportunity to make informed choices and plan for the future.

Below is a list of common issues that we can help with:

  • Arguments with mum/dad/step parents/carers/siblings
  • Disagreements over house rules, routines and/or chores
  • Not being in education, employment or training
  • Lack of income
  • Drug and alcohol misuse
  • Physical health difficulties
  • Mental health and learning difficulties
  • Behavioural problems
  • Criminal or anti-social behaviour
  • Anger management problems
  • Self harm

How we help young people and their families

We provide holistic needs assessments and a bespoke support plan for all young people accessing the service. The assessment and support plan looks at all aspects of the young person’s life to try and address any underlying unmet needs which may lead to homelessness.

Single Access Point assessors take into account the young person’s individual circumstances and gives realistic advice on the options available to young people. 

We assist young people and their families in planning for future goals and when it is appropriate, accommodation.

What about parents/carers?

Sometimes the process of coaching a young person towards independence can be frustrating and challenging and this can lead to difficulties in relationships at home. 

To give young people the best chance we encourage parental involvement, as it is recognised that when a young person has family support they are more likely to succeed in life.
