Excellence is our aim

We are delighted to have started 2016 by being achieving Advice Quality Standard certification - the mark of quality for independent advice organisations for our work down at Drop in Zone.

We have also been re-awarded IIP silver. The standard defines what it takes to lead, support and manage people well for sustainable results – exactly what we intend for the young people we work with.

Can you help us beat 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 rent for supporting a young person who might otherwise be homeless. We will provide you with comprehensive training and support to help ensure its a rewarding experience as you play a part in better futures to 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.

Placing homeless 16 and 17 year olds in 'B&B' accommodation is far from desirable. This short-stay accommodation projects allow young people to see if they really do want to leave home yet or to improve home-life so they can return.
We help hundreds of people find new homes each year with CAYSH's Rent in Advance Services. We enable people to get into private rented accommodation when finances alone might otherwise prevent them.
