Living on the streets was no fun. I was so alone couldn’t talk to anyone. Then one day I found a service. This gave life a lot of purpose. They helped me trust and sort myself out. No longer having to scream and shout. They helped me put my life together. My confidence has got much better!

Accommodation (usually a spare room) is provided by that family or individual who are trained and supported to allow young people to live with them. the householder will support the young person on a daily basis with independent living and a support worker will assist to manage the placement.
