Every year around 83,000 young people experience homelessness and more than 150,000 seek help. Young people become homeless for many reasons family breakdown, drug and alcohol problems, leaving care, losing a job and once homeless, it can be very difficult to find work, secure accommodation and get back on your feet.
Amber makes a difference. Each year we work with 200+ young people (aged 17-30) at our residential centres in Devon, Surrey and Wiltshire and help them rebuild their lives. We do this by:
Offering a temporary, safe place to live, away from negative peer pressure
Delivering person centred support and training designed to provide the motivation and encouragement young people need to re-evaluate their lives and plan for a more positive future
Working in teams to build their self-confidence and wellbeing, focus on their strengths and interests, and set key objectives that will enable them to move on successfully
