Charity information

Bolton Young Persons Housing Scheme

We are a local charity based in Bolton providing accommodation and support to enable homeless young people aged between 16 - 25 years to live independently and progress to positive outcomes. Young people are referred to us because they are rough sleeping or living in unsafe or unsuitable accommodation. This is due to a combination of factors including drugs misuse, mental health issues, domestic violence, offending behaviour, relationship breakdowns and extreme poverty.
