Our impact

Helping to build a more stable life

Since we launched in 2015 we’ve supported hundreds of young people as they move on from the care system, providing transformative support to help them build a stable life.

Our 2022-23 impact

With youth homelessness increasing last year and young people bearing the brunt of the cost of the economic downturn, our work is more vital than ever. Over the last year:

Young people supported across our Programmes
Hours of 1:1 wellbeing support and coaching
Of young people sustained their tenancies after 12 months
“Having someone to support me with knowing who to call and what to say when I had issues, whether it was with repairs, bills, or other things, has made me feel much more confident doing it myself.”

Reaching more young people

We increased our reach and impact significantly this year. We supported 167 young people through The Settle Programme which is the most we’ve supported in our history and a 16% increase from the previous year.

Helping young people manage their tenancies

While 97% of Programme graduates have sustained their tenancies this year, 92% feel more in control of their lives and those in rent arrears have reduced their arrears by an average of £959.

Delivering our support services

We also significantly increased the amount of direct financial and mental health support we provided to young people to support them through the Cost of Living Crisis. We provided £25,949 of emergency grants for young people and mental health support through therapeutic counselling which is a 113% increase on the last year.
