What is homelessness?

"The definition of homelessness means not having a home. You are homeless if you have nowhere to stay and are living on the streets. But you can be homeless even if you have a roof over your head. You can be homeless if you do not have rights or permission to stay where you are, or you live in unsuitable housing" (Shelter)

How can we support you?

If you think you are homeless or at risk of homelessness, please contact Youth Homeless Prevention, or speak to a trusted adult who can help you contact us. If safe to do so, we will ask for your consent to contact your parents/carers to confirm that you are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We will assess your situation and check what support you are eligible for.
