Our vision is to create a home for young adults in which they can flourish and grow in their personal and social skills.
The house will be run by a live-in family.
A place to relax, to create and to meet new friends
Our priority is to provide a place for young adults who struggle to find accommodation in London.
We believe that certain things can be best learnt in a community and are essential for personal well-being. Therefore we would encourage all young guests to take part in the shared mealtimes and encourage community activities.
A place to discover, learn and realise your potential
YouthCommunityHome will encourage the young guests to achieve their next goals into independence. We will signpost our young guests to available support and training, which will help them to develop life skills and to prepare them to move on.
We will give the young guests the opportunity to participate in cooking, cleaning and housekeeping as part of a community.
A place to stay
The housing crisis is one of the greatest challenges facing London and there are many reasons young adults face homelessness such as affordability, adequate support network and lack of housing benefits. Finding suitable accommodation can be difficult and many young adults are forced into a disruptive cycle which can have a negative impact on their education, employment, health and well-being.
The YouthCommunityHome will provide quality accommodation to help them to stay in education and training, as well as getting a job, enabling them to find more sustainable housing in the future.
