Your donation will ensure we can be there for families in crisis

Can you help more young people turn their lives around?

There are lots of reasons that young people find themselves homeless, but right now family breakdown is the highest reported cause in the UK. It's responsible for 49% of all youth homelessness. This is why your donation is so important. It can get to the root of the issue, helping families resolve their problems and learn to communicate into the future. A stable home could change a young person's future.      

Help a young person like Jake find stability at home

Jake's Story

Jake was at a high risk of homelessness. His mum struggled to communicate with him and every conversation ended in arguments. When he missed school, things got worse. She would worry, react badly and so he'd run away.


Jake was referred to Depaul UK. Thanks to donors like you we were able to work with him to understand why he was running away and helped his mum challenge his behaviour constructively. Gradually, they started to communicate better, even spending quality time together over coffee.


Donor support also helped Jake reach his full potential. We helped him find more hands-on work. His attendance has now improved dramatically and he has even gone back to study Maths and English.

Your donation could...

Offer a dedicated session with a family support worker.
Support a young person through mediation and enable them to return home safely.
