Specialist Support

Half of all mental health problems have been established by the age of 14, rising to 75% by the age of 24. Young people experiencing problems with their mental health or emotional well-being have an increased risk of needing further intervention later in life, which could include needing to access homelessness services. Equally, young people facing homelessness are often also experiencing difficulties with their mental health or emotional well-being so we offer both early outreach support for younger people (11-16), and specialist support for young people in accommodation services.

Our specialist support services include:
