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. A significant contributing factor is the high level of youth unemployment in the North East and the resulting high levels of deprivation. There are particular problems associated with supporting 16-17 year olds due to the complexity of young peoples’ needs and we have seen a rapid increase in mental health problems amongst young people.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

YHNE is an independent organisation which supports partnership and collaboration between young people and other organisations and providers in the youth homelessness sector. We work to boost the voice of young people to influence responses to youth homelessness and to promote early intervention and prevention of homelessness. We provide guidance for young people at risk of homelessness 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 because of the financial and other support we received from our partner organisations and funders. We are looking to partner with organisations who share our passion to end youth homelessness in the North East and to provide assistant to young people at risk of homelessness.
