Housing options for younger people

The Hub - support and advice

The Hub offers universal support and advice on housing-related issues to all young people aged 16-25.

Homelessness and advice services for young people in North Yorkshire have been brought together under one roof in the form of the Young People's Housing Solution @ The Hub.

Seven Hubs consist of the district or borough Housing Options Team, a hub coordinator and two homelessness prevention workers; one from the Children and Young Peoples service for 16 and 17 years old.

How does it work?

For those at risk of homelessness, the service offers advice and reconnection to help young people remain in/return to their home or make suitable alternative living arrangements with family or friends.

Where this isn't successful, young people who require more intensive support will be supported to access supported accommodation.

Pathway 1

Offers support to try and help young people to return home or to find an alternative suitable living arrangement. Young people may be provided with emergency accommodation with a host household for up to two weeks.

Pathway 2

Offers longer-term support where young people have been unable to return home. Support required will be determined following assessment of need and may include general support without accommodation, or more intensive support with accommodation of up to two years.

Who is eligible?

All young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness should be referred to The Hub. Any young person who require more general advice on issues such as tenancies, deposits and housing issues.
