We support around 2500 16-24 year olds every year, the majority of whom are in urgent need of housing.

Here's how we help them into accommodation:

  • Make referrals into hostels, shelters and other accommodation 
  • Help with benefit problems or making claims
  • Advise or help with appeals for those who have been sanctioned 
  • Help in communicating with Probation, Police, Social Workers or hostel workers 
  • Find support for those with debt problems
  • Find support, such as mediation, for those who may be homeless due to a relationship breakdown
  • Get legal advice or a solicitor
  • Keep an Emergency Fund to cover urgent accommodation needs

We always listen and help young people make positive choices.



Housing Advice FAQ

How do I get a housing appointment?

You would need to be outside New Horizon Youth Centre at 10.15am. There is no guarantee that everybody will get an appointment every time.


If I arrive late, will I get a housing appointment?

It is unlikely that there will be any spaces left but you could ask at reception. If you do get an appointment this way you would still need to be outside at 10.15am for further appointments. 


Can I be referred to a night shelter on my first visit?

We cannot refer anybody into a night shelter until an assessment has been completed.
