Preventing youth homelessness in Crawley
Vulnerable children and young people have never been more at risk. We provide vital services so that young people in Crawley, who may have had a difficult start in life, can create a brighter future.
Our impact in Crawley
In Crawley we provide a range of services for children and young people, 16 to 25, which act as a 'safety-net' to catch those at risk. From providing youth groups, counselling and support & advice, to giving a home to those who are in crisis and facing homelessness, we change lives.
Children and young people facing homelessness in Crawley can find a safe, supportive home with us. Our 24 hour supported housing is so much more than 'just a room'. We provide wraparound support so that our residents can get the emotional support, life skills and help back into education, training or employment to enable them to 'move on' successfully to independence. Our dedicated staff (and volunteers) help young people develop the tools they need to reach their full potential.

Crawley Foyer is a 24 hour supported housing project in the area, for young people between the ages of 16 and 25.
