‘It’s off the scale’, youth homelessness up 65% for one London shelter

Posted on: 2 November 2023

New Horizon Youth Centre was featured on ITV News on 1st November 2023.

Young people Mohamed and Mohannad spoke to Daniel Henry from ITV London News about what their experience of homelessness has been, and what support they need to thrive.

“It was so difficult for me. I can’t handle everything by myself. It’s hard, it’s hard.”

We also hear from Godgive, our nurse about the conditions facing young people in London at the moment and from Simon, a Housing Advice Worker, about how young people are struggling to get into accommodation.

“This city does not treat young people well. I am speaking from experience. What does the future hold?”


The story is rounded off by Phil, our CEO, explaining how the numbers of young people we are seeing are way higher than previously this year, and how we are trying to pull out all the stops to support every single young person that comes through our door.
