103,000 young people

in the UK went to their council in 2017/18 as they were homeless or at risk of becoming so.

Less than half of those (48%)

received meaningful support to prevent or relieve their homelessness.

44% of young homeless people

are not in education, employment or training.

And 41%

lack independent living skills.

What we're doing

It all starts with a home and a job

We believe no young person should be in poverty.

That’s why we’ve pioneered a scheme that gives young homeless people in Bristol, Sheffield, Norfolk and Perth the chance to renovate derelict houses into safe and affordable homes for them to live in.

‘Future Builders’ helps break the cycle of homelessness by equipping young people with the training and skills they need to live and work independently.

We'll do all this while thinking of our planet. We're working hand in hand with OVO Energy to power each home with subsidised renewable energy, helping young people live more independently - and more sustainably too. Once they’ve made their house a home, young people are supported as they transition into longer term work.

Our recent news

Future Builders started as a pilot. We've learnt a lot along the way and are happy to share what works - and more importantly, what doesn't - with others in the sector.
