The freezing streets are no place for young people to be. You feel the chill in your bones. There's no way and nowhere you can get warm. You lose all hope, and you're so vulnerable.

Snow has been falling around the country

Snow showers have reached many of our services around England including Manchester, Bradford and Barnsley. Below you can see some of the pics our staff have taken from our service areas around the county. There's more snow predicted in the next few weeks which means more homeless young people could be out braving the freezing streets.

Your donation could start a future this winter

This winter, thousands of young people will be homeless or at risk of being homeless. But your donation can give young people the chance to leave homelessness behind for good.

With your help we can provide young people with a warm, safe room and ongoing support from a Key Worker. This will give them the chance to learn important life skills to help them move on to live independently.


We work with each young person to come up with a plan to reach their goals.


Good health is the foundation on which young people can build their confidence and skills.

Moving On

At all times, our overall goal is to prepare homeless young people to live independently.
