Being without accommodation is a difficult state to be in. There exists a number of charities and organisations that seek to end homelessness, and provide the necessary care to those without shelter.

hyh is an independent charity that has been supporting vulnerable people in Hertfordshire for over 15 years. We have offices throughout Hertfordshire with over 50 staff and many more volunteers. Most of our work is with young people aged 16-24 who have had difficulty in securing and maintaining safe, secure accommodation.

Emmaus is a homelessness charity with a difference. They don’t just give people a bed for the night; they offer a home, meaningful work and a sense of belonging.

For many people who have experienced homelessness, losing their self-esteem can be the most damaging part of their experience. Being on your own, with no support around you can be soul destroying, leaving you feeling worthless.

Colchester Korban Project provides a safe and secure stop-gap for vulnerable young people, whilst solutions are found to their housing problems. With your help, we can help to prevent young people falling into the downward spiral of long-term homelessness.

Volunteer families offer a young person the chance to stay in a safe, friendly, normal environment. This allows an often confused and vulnerable young person the chance to take stock of their situation without the worry of where they will sleep tonight.
