What we do

Every day of every year, thousands of young people in the UK find themselves homeless. Many are forced to sleep in overcrowded hostels, in cheap B&Bs, or worse still, on the streets.

Yet homelessness isn’t inevitable. It’s a problem that can be solved.  

With the right support services and secure accommodation, we can prevent young people from becoming homeless and protect those who are. 

Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. Rising rents and reductions in benefit payments have had a negative impact on the country’s most vulnerable young people and organisations delivering critical services are struggling with an increase in demand. They desperately need investment to reach more young people.

That’s why we’re here. We bring together remarkable businesses and individuals from across the property industry to support projects that deliver life-changing services to young people facing homelessness.

We help to protect young people on the streets, provide accommodation and training and tackle the root causes of homelessness.

We do this by:

Awarding grants to exceptional small-medium sized charities working with young people who are at risk of becoming homeless, are currently homeless, or have experienced homelessness in the past. We mainly fund capital projects which provide much-needed homes and stimulating spaces for vulnerable young people.

Brokering free property expertise for charities working to end youth homelessness, including those supporting disadvantaged young people and children. We match skilled property professionals from our amazing network of partner companies with charities in need of advice on their buildings.

Raising awareness of homelessness. We use our profile within the property industry to highlight the issue of homelessness and challenge stereotypes. We also provide a platform for young people to have their views heard through our Young Voices programme.

Our goal is to end youth homelessness by 2026. Will you join us?
