I'm 16 or 17 and need help with housing

Are you 16 or 17 and worried about your home life? Do you want to talk to someone independent who can advise what’s best for you?

YPSF’s 16/17 homelessness prevention team works with young people who are worried about their home life. This could be anything from not getting on with parents, worrying about what will happen if you are pregnant or have a baby, or being scared of an abusive partner or family member. If you are already homeless we can help you to find accommodation.

We can be your first step for help if you don’t know where to turn. You can call us, email us or come and see us in person and we will talk about your situation and help you to resolve it. If you live with your family or a guardian we will try and help you to resolve any problems you have so you can stay at home. If you feel threatened or are in danger, we can find you temporary accommodation and help you to plan for the future.

We can also help you to organise your finances, arrange healthcare, access education and training or find work. We work with other agencies, including Children’s Services, Social Services, Connexions, housing providers and immigration authorities to make sure that you get the help you need from the right people. All our services are free and confidential.

Don't wait for a crisis - Get in touch now

I could tell the support workers had experience and that some of them had been through the same things I was going through. They knew who to contact and speak to and when they spoke to me they didn’t make me feel ashamed or embarrassed. I had someone to talk to who really understood.” Charlotte, 17
