Working together to make a difference.
Our approach to preventing youth homelessness is thanks entirely to our volunteer ‘hosts’.
These are ordinary people who have a spare room and want to help make a difference to a young person in their local community. Working together with our hosts, we make sure that young people can continue their education or work, even though they have lost their home.
We also work with other agencies so that they receive the support they need to resolve any additional problems they may have.
We currently work across York, North Yorkshire and East Riding.
How you can help
There are lots of ways you can help us. If you have a spare room and would like to be directly involved, you could become a volunteer host.
We also welcome your support through donations, fundraising or simply by helping us spread the word.
Sing for SASH
Thanks to the brilliant support of local musicians, 29 November is 'Sing for SASH' day. There will be busking at different locations in York and a special gig in the evening, all in aid of SASH.
Lisa was made homeless at 16.
Our Nightstop service kept her safe at a time of crisis, and Supported Lodgings gave her the stability she needed to return to college.
