Our impact highlights

  • In 2014-2015, we helped 199 children and more at secure accommodation and we supported 365 children and young people who were facing homelessness.
  • We have also published the report, ‘The Door Is Closed’ which highlights the failure of many Local Authorities to comply with their legal duties to protect homeless children and young people. The report details the experiences of children who were homeless and approached their Local Authority’s Children’s services department but were turned away with no support, or too little- some without having being assessed.
  • We piloted our ‘Your Life, Your Care’ survey as part of our Bright Spots project which measures how well children and young people feel their Local Authority is supporting them, based on what they told us was important to them.
