Working in partnership with Health and Adult Services, Children and Young People's Services and other local housing support and accommodation providers, Hambleton District Council deals with all 16-25 year olds through The Hub.
The Young People's Housing Solutions @ the Hub is in your area to assist with all issues around housing and homelessness.
- support if you are a young person aged between 16-25 and are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless
- general housing advice and support around issues like benefits and managing a tenancy
- support and help to stay in your own home where it is safe and appropriate to do so
- a range of accommodation and support services when staying at home isn't suitable or possible
Staff in the Hub will:

- answer any questions you have.
- take into account your wishes and feelings.
- provide you with a support worker who will help you through the entire process.
Advice and support at The Hub

As parents have parental responsibility until their child is 18, they will always be contacted by the council for clarification of circumstances. If a young person presents as homeless we offer to refer people with relationship problems to Relate, to try to solve their problems even if only in the short term.
Due to the lack of affordable accommodation in the Hambleton area, many people feel they have no choice but to declare friends/relatives as 'homeless' in the belief it will help them. However there is a severe lack of housing available and attempts to solve housing problems must be sought first.
