WF2016 Charity: Herts Young Homeless
The Herts Young Homeless charity works with around 1,800 young people every year, offering support, mediation and education services.
When Jamie was thrown out by his mum, it was the Herts Young Homeless charity who found him emergency accommodation using their ‘Crashpad’ service and started the mediation process that helped get him back home.
“I couldn’t have carried on with my apprenticeship if my hosts had not offered me the placement with them. I’m so grateful that someone was kind enough to give up a room for me.”
hyh is a unique charity in Hertfordshire providing services to support vulnerable, homeless young people aged primarily between 16 and 24 years old. They also have an Under 16s Mediation service which has helped children as young as 10 years old and a health service working with individuals over the age of 16 who have mental health issues.
Your help will make a significant difference to the lives of young people who feel they have nowhere left to turn.
Thank you on behalf of everyone at hyh and the young people they work with for all of your support so far and hopefully in the future.
