About Us

history of SASH

SASH is a registered charity (no. 1054890).

We work to prevent homelessness in young people aged 16-25 in York, North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire.

We help young people get the support they need so that a time of crisis does not lead to a vicious circle of homelessness and unemployment.

Working together is the key to our approach to youth homelessness.

We work with our hosts to respond to the problems of homelessness among young people in our community. Our staff team provide our volunteer hosts with training, advice and support to enable them to provide a safe and welcoming environment for homeless young people in their homes.

The causes of homelessness are complex and we can’t resolve them simply by putting a roof over someone’s head in an emergency.

That is why we also work with local agencies including councils, schools and colleges, health services other charities to ensure that each young person referred to our services is able to access the full range of support that they need to resolve the underlying causes of their homelessness.
