P3 – Wolverhampton Housing & Homeless Service
The Pathway Service is a different approach to tackling homelessness. The P3 charity offers a three stage approach. The first stage is direct access accommodation, then move-on hostel accommodations and finally people involved with the service move on to support accommodation.
End Youth Homelessness
In the UK each year, 83,000 young people find themselves homeless. End Youth Homelessness is a UK wide movement, bringing together local charities to tackle youth homelessness on a national scale. They work in three main areas; prevention of homelessness, ensuring homeless people have somewhere to live, and supporting young homeless people into employment.
Violence, abuse, gangs, drugs, and problems with mental health – young people often become homeless because it’s safer to leave home than to stay. Tens of thousands of young people ask for help with homelessness every year, but there is a solution. CentrePoint work nationally to promote prevention of homelessness, provide housing, education and health support for young people who find themselves without a home.
Crisis are a national charity for homeless people. They help people directly out of homelessness and campaign for the changes needed to solve it all together. The website has a dedicated ‘get help’ page for people who need help right now whether it’s help with housing or information on what to do if you are worried about someone.
