The Youth Homeless Prevention team provide support to 16- and 17-year-olds who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, as part of the Early Help approach at Torbay Council.
Who does the Youth Homeless Prevention team support?
Are you a 16- or 17-year-old who has been asked to leave your home?
Are you a parent or carer struggling to maintain your young person staying at home? Or are you considering / have you asked your young person to leave?
If so, please get in contact with the Youth Homeless Prevention team via the email address or phone number below and we can offer advice and support.
(Please note, if you are over the age of 18 or are a household, please contact Housing Options on 01803 208723).
What support can the Youth Homeless Prevention team offer?
We are very much focused on prevention and support, with young people and their families being central to our thinking and planning. We understand that it can be a stressful time, so we take the time to truly understand what is going on for you and your child and why they may be homeless or at risk of homelessness. This then helps us to know what support, advice or signposting is needed. We can link you in with other support services (with your consent). We can also, where necessary and appropriate, support young people who are homeless to access accommodation in Torbay.
