Safe homes and better futures for young people

Want to earn some £ from a spare room while helping end youth homelessness?

We need more people to help with our lodgings services across south London. You can earn upwards of £70 per week on top of ren for supporting a young person who might otherwise be forced to sleep rough.

We will provide you with comprehensive training and support so you can play a part in providing safe homes and better futures for young people.

CAYSH receives Private Renting Champions Award

We are delighted to have received the Private Renting Champions Award from Crisis, the national charity for single homeless people - for our CRIAS Light service. The service has helped more than 150 homeless people find and keep private rented housing over the last two years. Leslie Morphy, chief executive of Crisis, said: “Homeless people really struggle to overcome so many hurdles when trying to find a decent place to call home. The work of schemes like CAYSH's is crucial. Crisis is really pleased to acknowledge their efforts through this Champions award.” Click on the logo to see what Crisis said.
