More than 80% of homeless young people have a diagnosed mental health problem. 18% have attempted suicide.

Shocking statistics, but not surprising when you stop and think.

  •  Imagine if you had grown up in a home where drug use was the norm.
  • Imagine if your parents subjected you to years of physical and sexual abuse.
  • Imagine moving from one foster family to another, never having a place to call home.

Break the Cycle here... ButtonWe are working with increasing numbers of young people, who have seen and done things that most adults cannot comprehend. But lengthy waiting times in mental health services mean that many young people today are trapped in a cycle of homelessness, which is why we urgently need your support now. 

Your gift can help us provide:

  • A safe and supportive environment for homeless young people
  • The support of a professional psychologist to address childhood trauma
  • Day trips and opportunities to engage in positive healthy activities
  • Practical advice and life-skills training
