  • Need

    Need

    The most vulnerable children and young people requiring the support of the Young Lives Foundation are also the least likely to have access to mobile phones with credit or the internet, especially those who are homeless or missing. This creates a barrier and can delay young people receiving vital support they need.

    Solution

    a Freephone line will allow children and young people to contact our service at a time convenient to them and receive immediate support and advice with no cost or delay.
