Over 31% of all homeless people are aged under 25 years old. The single most common reason for youth homelessness is a breakdown in their relationship with family members. Ynot Aspire work one to one with young people and our core objective is always to try and help repair their relationships and return them to their family home.
If needed, Ynot Aspire supports the local authority and social services with their statutory responsibility to provide accommodation to a young person.
In the last 5 years we worked with over 160 young people facing homelessness.

Mental Health Support

Now more than ever, young people need our support to overcome the issues that the pandemic has brought and help them to build their resilience and coping skills so they can look forward to a brighter future.
