Our work in Norfolk to prevent youth homelessness
We have accommodation centres in across Norfolk for young people aged 16-25 who are homeless, or at great risk of becoming so. We not only provide them with a stable home, but give them the confidence and skills they need so they can leave us and forge an independent life.
'Heart and Home' also provides an important service to prevent youth homelessness in Norfolk. We have a network of Hosts throughout the county who trained and supported by us to look after a person in the host's own home.
