Boost Up provides a tailored package of support in order to get young people into good quality accommodation that would otherwise have been out of their reach.
They’re vision is a City in which young homeless Londoners have the means of getting off the streets within 24 hours, the support necessary to obtain long term accommodation within a month, and the guidance necessary to build their self-reliance and recognise their agency. Boost Up do this by,
• Providing a time limited rental subsidy to cover the shortfall between the market rate, giving the young person in a tenancy the time to get into work and afford the rent themselves.
• Access to rent in advance/deposit for those who have found a property but cannot afford it.
• Support for those in accommodation with temporary rental shortfalls and facing eviction.
• A short term ‘Independence Payment’ for those on a very low income
