We believe that ‘Every young person has the right to a home’

Help us to ensure that every young person can enjoy that right

Youth Homeless North East provides a voice for young people aged 14-25 who have experienced or are at risk of homelessness in order to prevent, tackle and resolve youth homelessness.

Why your help is needed

The 2016 and 2017 YHNE surveys of youth homelessness in the North East confirm that levels of homelessness remains a serious issue for the region, and the numbers of rough sleepers are increasing. We have seen a rapid increase in mental health problems amongst young people.

Why we need your help

YHNE works in collaboration between young people and the services that support them to boost the voice of young people to influence responses to youth homelessness and to promote early intervention and prevention of homelessnesss. We provide guidance for homeless young people and the services that work with them and engage in consultation with young people to increase societal awareness of homelessness to inform strategic change.

We believe strongly in our cause. However, we can only continue to operate with your help. More than ever we need to raise funds to develop our services and continue to engage with young people affected by homelessness.

YHNE’s objective is ‘to prevent, tackle and resolve homelessness experienced by young people aged 14 to 25 years old in the north of England’  by:
Amplifying the voice of young people to shape solutions and influence policy.
Growing our ability to broker strategic solutions to Youth Homelessness.
Increasing early intervention and prevention impact through education and local capacity building.
Developing local and regional delivery models with effective route maps for young people at risk of homelessness.
Increasing the collective knowledge and societal awareness of homelessness through research, robust evidence and effective dissemination.
Seeking to add value and work in partnership, guided by our core values, and achieve long term sustainability.
