Support 80,000 Homeless Young People in the UK
Young people sleeping on the streets are the most visible examples of youth homelessness. A home is a place that provides security, privacy, and links to a community and support network.
According to research carried out by the University of York, 78,000-80,000 young people experience homelessness in a year in the UK. This is a staggering figure and reflects the scale of the problem of youth homelessness in the UK.
Homelessness has a serious impact on young people with long term implications for their education, health and employment prospects and can lead to an escalation of substance abuse.
At TRT, we have teamed up with Crisis, the UK’s leading charity for single homeless people. We recognise that homelessness is not only a housing problem and there are a range of causes and contributing factors to the problem. Through partnership work, we aim to support hundreds of young people to transform their lives.
